    To add to the confusion, the ECMA-334 standard writes in its reference PDF (page

        This clause is informative.
        The name C# is pronounced "C Sharp".
        The name C# is written as the LATIN CAPITAL LETTER C (U+0043) followed
        by the NUMBER SIGN # (U+000D).
        End of informative text.

    Yes it contains an error for the Unicode code point (not U+000D as indicated),
    but it states it is to we written with the "NUMBER SIGN". The "informative"
    pronounciation is not mandatory, not even, the orthograph (which also contains
    an error...)
