The + sign in UTF-7 sequences is always encoded by Yahoo as a numeric character reference (NCR) to avoid XSS attacks. You can view-source on the page to see that this is the case (you do not see UTF-7 sequences represented as characters in the page). It may have worked at the time you posted it (2005), but Yahoo has closed that loophole since then.
