ADE swapping out hyperlink text?

Hi, I have a link in an eBook I'm working on that goes to Google + (plus), and the link has a "+" in the text. This is not causing problems in iBooks or even the Kindle, and a Nook handled it fine, but ADE is changing the "+" to %20 (which is the HTML version of +). Does anyone know a way around that?

I can't change the code in the link itself to %20 because that just breaks it. Just wondering if this is something that can be addressed in the HTML, or is it one of the many quirks that ADE has?

A plus sign is a link is illegal text. This is why Adobe is changing it. There are certain symbols including spaces that are not permitted in links.

If a '+' is url encoded it should be to '%2B', '%20" is a space. See HTML URL Encoding Reference
