Part of my application retrieves query string via a http post. eg, http://a.c.com/app/test.aspx?

qs =Request.QueryString("str")

qs is in valid xml form, however i encountered the following error due to the '#' sign which is not a reserved symbol in xml. The process will be ok if i remove the # sign. Pls advise.

Unexpected end of file has occurred. The following elements are not closed: ID..

This is occurring due a value in a url followed by a # indicates a link to an anchor on the page.
If you examine your actual query string received by ASP.NET, you will notice that anything after and including the hash character will not be sent by the browser.
