    I've seen this a couple times in some websites. What does the "#" refer to?

    <a href="#" class="more"><img src="images/more.gif" alt="" border="0" /></a>

    Top of the page you're on.

    It's usually used in conjunction with a Javascript to provide a point for non-Javascript users to go.

    I've seen it used as just a PLACEHOLDER in many sample scripts and samples that are spread across the internet.

    I've also seen that used when using CSS and CSS/Javascript , to be the action to make a css style function properly.... in your case ( show more )... where a CSS div has a value of "transparent" but when the link is hovered or clicked it changes the value to visible.

    The # symbol is reference to another Anchor.

    <a> tags are Anchor's, right? You can also name your anchors:
    test.html
    HTML Code:
    <a name="test">Example text</a>
    Now that you have a named Anchor, you can now link to any part of your page, without changing the page:
    test.html
    HTML Code:
    <a href="#test">move location to Example text</a>
    This is commonly done for very long pages, with a lot of content. In addition, you can also link to that "Example text" from another page:
    anotherpage.html
    HTML Code:
    <a href="test.html#test">move to page test.html and to the location of Example text</a>
    I hope this helps!
