This isn't international format, but it does seem to contain some
rather questionable characters.

It's basically the result of submitting an input type=text field
with a name of "url+AA-^F", where is ^F is the control F code (ACK),
and a value of";

This should be impossible to do in an actual form from valid HTML as
^F is not a valid character (after resolution to ISO 10646) in any
HTML document.  However many commercial browsers are known for not being
picky about illegal characters (at one time, a lot of sites sent Microsoft
smart quote characters with illegal codes betweed 0x80 and 0x9F.

At a guess, the +'s were supposed to be &'s, but I've no idea how you
got a ^F into the code.

It's not clear what you used to do this.
