Bad value for attribute “href” on element “a”: Illegal character in fragment: “#” is not allowed.

An <a> element has been found with an invalid href attribute, containing more than one # adjacent character.

The # is used to separate the fragment part of an URI (typically used to indicate a section within a document). For example, this is a valid link to a URI containing a fragment:

<a href="https://example.com/faqs#pricing">pricing</a>

The next example is invalid because it contains two adjacent # characters, so that the fragment part would be #pricing instead of pricing:

<a href="https://example.com/faqs##pricing">pricing</a>
