    Ducky, the links fenix and belen have provided will lead you to a (literally) exahusting discussion on the use of # around Spanish-speaking world.

    Although it's mentioned in the threads linked to above, I just wanted to clarify that in the UK the "pound sign" always means this: £ (the symbol for pounds sterling), whereas # is called a hash symbol.
