      Spaces are often escaped to + in URL & form encoding of data.

      So on the way in, + is converted back to space. The same conversion
      process is applied to Query/Form/Cookie data.

      The only chance in getting the original + data in a cookie is that
      cookie generator to URL encode + with the %NN version.
