The canonical tag needs to be pure HTML.
www.example.com should always be immediately followed by a /
No idea if the # is a problem or not, but I would not include it.

Thanks for the reply. I also want it to be in HTML code. I want proof to convince the client. Is there any official doc/reference which says it should be pure HTML?

Seems to me the computer would wig out if it found the "canonical" tag attached to something that can't possibly be an URL, as in example.com#

This is basic 'How the Web Works 101' stuff.

lucy24 - the canonical tag is like example.com/# So I don't think it will trouble the computer.

I would not rely on it.

Bottom line, it's got to be in the actual generated HTML of the page.
