Square brackets

About: ascii table - ascii character codes and html, octal, hex and decimal charts

You can enter square brackets that do not have their normal grammatic effect in say what and comment boxes by entering their HTML entity codes.

For example: [ this is between square brackets ]

Unfortunately when you edit those item the codes will be trslated back and you will need to reenter them.

At some point perhaps, consider escape codes, eh ? On the other hand this is not intended to be programming like in (ug!) regular expressions.

in my book those are escape codes .. what other kind of HTML escapes are you refering to ?

Mark de LA says
Yes those are escape codes if you consume ASCII for breakfast. Could assign one character like the back slant like regular expressions. This is a minute problem.

For a brief time I thought my first comment came in before your 2nd one. Just for my info, at what time does the date-time info get assigned to a comment & an item ?
