I haven't posted in a while, and I did try to look for this in many places, but can't seem to find a proper solution. I can go into great detail, but here are the specifics:

We have a website whereby people can search by date range. So, for example, here is the portion of the URL that is doing the search:


(where "%20" is a space).

The results come out properly while in the office. However, for security reasons, our security team doesn't like having html brackets (">" and "<") in the URL. As such, when people search this site externally, they get error messages.

Are there any alternatives to using ">=" and "<=" for date range searches in the URL? I've tried "%3*" characters which work internally, but not externally, as well.

I could redo the site so the searches are done in the back-end, which bypasses this problem. However, this would be a major undertaking. Ideally, I can still do the search by date range, but without using the html brackets.

Thanks, in advance!
