Can someone please explain why we use the '#' symbol. href="articles/2017/article.html#vr-article"

href="articles/2017/article.html#vr-article" After .html here

Thank you in advance. Ryan

The # points to a specific spot in the HTML so you can skip to a certain section of a long page, the part after the # needs to be the id of an HTML element also, so it knows exactly where to skip to since ids should be unique.
