Escaping the pound sign?

How do I escape the pound sign (#) in Perl?

If I try to enter HEX color values I always get an error, # is used for comment lines.

Example:

print "<FONT COLOR='#FFFFFF'>"

That won't work for 100 different reasons.

Thanks...

The escape character is \

So, COLOR="\#FFFF

I think my problem was that I was using double and not single quotes around the hex color, actually.  So you didn't really answer my question, AND your example syntax was incorrect, but I'll give you the points, since I asked such a dumb question.
