The # is used to point to an anchor on a page. Usually, you need the anchor 
name after the hash symbol, i.e.

However, in this case, odds are it's a JavaScript thing. In some older 
browsers, like pre-Netscape 4.7, I believe, when you created a link that 
had an onClick event in it, you still had to provide a real link to make it 
work. By using the hash symbol on the same page as the one you're on, you 
don't have to reload the page, and the JavaScript still executes.

At least, I seem to remember having to do that a few times...
