If you want to enter a token (word, symbol) that has a special meaning in Math, without having that meaning in effect, you can quote the token.
"+" is easier to use than + phantom {1}.

You could try
 Code: lim from x toward {0"+"} { {x^2-1} over {x-1} }

or perhaps you want to describe the situation where x is around one, and you want a superscripted plus sign:
 Code: lim from x toward {1^"+"} { {x^2-1} over {x-1} }
