not able to search files/folder using ampersand(&)

I am trying to search files using ampersand.

I have created a file with name "abc & xyz" on a fresh installation of alfresco 5.2.

now, I am trying to search the file but it is not considering ampersand.

I am able to search with 'abc' or 'abc*' because it is reading characters "abc" but when I try to search with 'abc &' or abc &* or &, its not working. 

when trying to search with abc & abc, the value goes on url - "abc %26 abc" instead of "abc & abc".


can anyone help me with handling ampersand for searching ?

thanks in advance.
