The '#' symbol ('pound' symbol) have special meaning in URL, its is used to indicate where a fragment identifier (bookmarks/anchors in HTML) begins in URL.

So avoid it, but if you still want to use it, then encoded it with '%' symbol concatenated by its hex(23) value, then URL looks like,,

http://mysite.com/app/servlet?param=%23

'%23' is for '#'.

More information can be found here.

You should be using encodeURIComponent: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Core_JavaScript_1.5_Reference/Global_Functions/encodeURIComponent
