html correctness link blank or pound sign

What's more correct, an empty string link or a pound?
For example for anchor tags <a href=""></a>
Or if I were to reference a style sheet, basically anywhere in the html document where a link should be, if I want to remove all these links is it better to make it a pound or blank?
If you need more details i'm basically canning them and need to remove all external dependencies.

I would go with #.

Even if it is only a separator, a # sign is commonly used through out HTML markup, specifically in reference to Javascript calls.

I use the # sign as an interim link for most projects.

Does anyone have a better thought/insight?
By separator I meant to keep your quotations away from one another and making your code look seriously hard to look at.
This thread didn't get much action. Did you need any more assistance?
