Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that IC converts 
every non-word character regardless of if it's before or after the ? so 
moving the search specs to after the ? wouldn't prevent anything.

Perhaps I'm missing something here as I don't see a problem with having 
the character converted in the URL.  Any decent webserver will have no 
problem converting it back (only a broken or non-HTTP conforming 
webserver or CGI perl library will have a problem with it).
