E-Prime considers the use of the [ and ] characters as a special nomenclature to signify an attribute reference.
Therefore, an experiment cannot specify these characters unless they are to mean an attribute reference lookup.
If an experiment requires these characters, they can be displayed in an InLine:
Stimulus.Text = "I can use the [ and ] characters here"

|Alternatively, savvy users may use the backslash character, '\', to escape the special meaning of the '[' and ']' directly in the GUI. E.g., use "I can use the \[ and \] characters here" directly in the GUI for the Stimulus TextDisplay object.|
