Hexidecimal color codes in .md notes are included in tag pane

Steps to reproduce

Make sure “Tag pane” plugin is enabled.
Create note(s) that include multiple hex color codes (I clipped this page with the markDownload browser extension).
Look at the tag pane, (it’s full of tags created by hex codes! :crazy_face:)

Expected result

TBH I’m not sure what the ideal is here. For me hex codes wouldn’t become tags at all. The problem is so many extra tags renders the tag pane useless. Maybe the best solution would be to optionally exclude color codes from the tag pane.

This is not a bug.
if you don’t want to use them as tags, you can escape them or use inline code #ffffff.
