"8 fragment" refers to part 8 as noted in Appendix B, RFC 2396.

I'll have to try a sample on Windows, but it seems to me that it is
possible that having a '#' character in your path might not be in fact a
valid URI. But if Microsoft supports it in their implementation, we'll
eventually have to support it. 

I need to go home now, and I don't have time to study RFC 2396 carefully
about this. Please read RFC 2396 and tell me what you think. If I'm
mis-interpreting some part of the spec, please tell me where and I'll
try to fix it...
