Re: The State of Web Browsing in Emacspeak [very long]



    As concerns the hash mark, I have never taken the time to figure
    out what it does.

Hash marks often indicate that the "printed representation" is not
what the computer sees, like

    #<buffer objects.texi>

But hash marks are used in other circumstances, too.  The second
character determines which.

#' is a short-hand for using `function' which is like `quote', but is
preferred for objects which are functions.  It causes the byte
compiler to compile them.
