WATCH OUT FOR KILLER OCTOTHORPES
How many times have you clicked on a link to a popup window and find that when you close the popup, you're back at the top of the page again? Well, you've been attacked by an octothorpe and I bet you didn't even know it! A what-o-thorpe, you ask? Octothorpe comes from the Greek word octo, which means eight. (If you've seen the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding, you should know that all words come from a Greek word! Joe tells me that the thorpe part comes from James Oglethorpe, Georgia's founder. Should we believe him? The true origin is unkown according to the dictionary, so the world may never know...) Anyway, this is an octothorpe: #. You can call it the number sign, a hash, a pound sign or any other words it may be known as, but I call 'em octothorpes.

This way you'll never subject your site's visitors to killer octothorpes again.
