Jeremy,
Some characters need to be URL-encoded in order to be included in a URL.
# should be represented as %23.. in your case:
program.php?letter=%23

These should help:
http://www.ittc.ukans.edu/~paden/reference/guides/Encode/url.html
http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_ref_urlencode.asp
http://www.cis.ohio-state.edu/cgi-bin/rfc/rfc1738.html

cheers,
Jerry

alphanumeric characters do. I just need confirmation '#' is a reserved
character that cannot be used as a parameter. Also, what other restrictions
are placed on parameters? Do they have to be alphanumeric?
