Disable hash link rewriting for a particular instance

I want to have hash link rewriting enabled for the entire site, but disabled for only one instance in a template because the rewriting is interfering with the function of a jQuery script associated with a few items on that page. Any ideas on how to accomplish this?

I've noticed that using single quotes, rather than double quotes, for the href attribute prevents the rewriting from occurring.

I can confirm this works and is a nice easy fix :).

Thanks for the tip!

I got around it temporarily by doing this:

public function CSPopLink() {
		$filename = $this->Logo()->Filename;
		$name = substr($filename, 0, strrpos($filename, '.'));
		return "#pop-".$name;

When you return a link through the controller, it doesn't get the hash rewrite applied. It only happens in the template.
