special chars - why using GET results in trimmed variables?

Hi,

I'm trying to use GET method to pass variables through my script files.
Unfortunately, when a special char (&, ?, +) is being posted the
variable gets trimmed in a very strange way. I'm aware, that's connected
with the way the GET method passes variable values, but I don't know how
to make GET to take the variable value "as it is" without interpreting
special chars as special chars.

So, how should I send GET variables in order not to get them trimmed
when they contain special chars?

Thanks in advance for your hints.
Best regards
