people, it's the third time I say this is a very well and known issue and
that we already have a fix for that...

Just to make it bluntly clear, I'll link to the Pull Request on github that
fixes it, here it is https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/pull/953 - it
deals with different things, including the fact that # becomes $, which is
part of this issue => https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/issues/558

I also mentioned a couple of times I have a hack that allows you to use "#"
in labeles, see [else/display], and it uses dynamic patching to create the
object with that in the label as an argument... see

attached is example image and patch, plus utf-8 solution !

works for me, but the  VIEWDATA SQUARE (U+2317) is not the "right" symbol
for sharp https://www.compart.com/en/unicode/U+2317 you actually want this
one instead => https://www.compart.com/en/unicode/U+266F

[list fromsybol] gives me "226 153 175" for this character, please try it.
