How can I type a "#" in the editor without it always being replaced by the beginnings of an ordered list?

I want to have a table heading that says something like "# good" and "# bad" or something... all that happens is "# g" is replaced with an ordered list "1. g". I've tried a whole lot of ways to get a simple # into the editor and they all result in, once there is a "#" and a "space" and some other character, instant replacement with an undesired ordered list...
