How to make sql 2005 full text search index short words

Would anyone have a suggestion on how to make SQL 2005 FTS index words like C# or C++? I know I could remove C (c) from noise words but FTS still ingores # and ++.

I have a text field that contains people's resumes (blobs) and inability to find C#, C++ et al is quite a show stopper.
