[NTG-context] removing # in XML identifiers

Dear list,

I have the following sample:

    <a href="#myspecialid">the previous section</a>

    \startxmlsetups xml:initialize


    \startxmlsetups xml:a
        \ctxlua{local originalid = "abcde";% doesn’t work with #


In both for some reason unknown to me, compilation crashes whe
string.sub has an string with # inside.

How could I get the following command working?


Even if I remove # from the href attribute, compilation crashes.

Sorry for asking this again, but which is the right way to do this?

I have spent hours trying to find out how to do it, but I’m afraid this
is beyond my knowledge.

Many thanks for your help,
