Like that? I don't quite understand from your link –  Earlz Mar 23 '10 at 15:47

Wow, that is really broken. You can't add a "+" to the URL either, so how is it possible to find the question with that broken tag? –  mmyers Mar 23 '10 at 15:47
    
I'm guessing this is true for other characters as well, just didn't try to find them... –  RSolberg Mar 23 '10 at 15:53
    
@mmyers, I'm sure Jeff can just look in the database.. but this is definitely a bug –  Earlz Mar 23 '10 at 15:53
    
there won't be many other characters that break like this; "+" is special to the URL syntax. note if it was "++" you could get the right tag; it's the single "+" that isn't working: stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/asp.net%2b%2bvb.net –  quack quixote Mar 23 '10 at 19:03
