Issue with Directions API on IE browser

We are trying to use the directions API in IE browser.  But after the URL is opened in the browser, the from and to fields on the web page are filled with %20 in the place of spaces. Please look at the following sample URL. That's how the request is made. But it ends up adding %20 in the place of spaces and that messes up and gives inaccurate directions. It works perfectly fine in the other browsers.  Please help in this regard. Thanks.

The browser is handling the url encoding so there isn't much, if anything, we can do about that. Maybe try using + instead of spaces or %20. But you can use the supported linking to MapQuest specification found here.

It turns out that it's an IE Bug. I tried using + to make it work. Thank you.
