[resolved] What does the hash tag mean in the href statement?

What does the hash tag mean in the href statement? Does this replace the actual url?

Hi Mark,

It is a placeholder. It allows the part of your link that is displayed in the web browser to look/act like a real link even though it isn't yet. Try looking at your webpage both with and without the # in your code and you'll see what I mean.
