Thanks, that agrees with what Tim Partridge said.
But no, the '#' symbol is not used in that context in Britain. Hey - we went
metric a long time ago! The international abbreviation for the mass unit we use
is "kg" (kilograms). The old abbreviation for the old Imperial "pound" is still
recognised though - it is "lb".

In North America, # is used as a symbol for pound in the paper industry, e.g.
or '80# cover'. This is a weight designation. I don't know if this is also used
in the UK
