I learned that the error was that it was looking for folder or directory "/#".  So after I created that folder I get endless redirect loop. So I am researching how to fix that.

My project for this client is such that his directories contain "#" in
the folder names, #test, and other symbols.  The '#' is the only one
that gives me problems because I know its a anchor and htacess ignores
it.  My rewrite code is:

RewriteRule [^\#] \%23

Try adding NE flag at the end:

RewriteRule ^\# \%23 [R,L,NE]

My goal was to convert the '#' to %23 because it works as
example.com/%23test/test.html but not as example.com/#test/test.html.
The error is get is:

The requested URL /# was not found on this server.

So I am on the write track as when i try ^# %23 the # is ignore or
other variations give me 500 error.  Thanks for any help.
