I'm building a web page (spreadsheet)
[ a date ] [ Bill Smith ]
[ a date ] [ Open ]
[ a date ] [ Open ]

which makes the page long. I have a floating select/option list for person select. In an effort to save the person doing the scheduling from having to scroll and scroll.... I've added ie "<a name=#W47.." to "Open" with the idea that I click on "Open" I get the URL of mypage/schedule.php?date=03May,#W23 I then parse out "03May", pull the persons name and update the database. My problem is the URL comes in as 03May,%23W23 and I get line one of the webpage. If I manually change the %23 to "#" and hit return - Ta-Da - it works, so I know it can be done. However I've tried backslash, quotes, # no mater what I try I can't get a "#" in the URL.

Thanks
