When is a $var[N] not $var[N]

When is a square bracket variable not a repeating variable?

 

Also, when is a square bracket variable visible as a merge variable?

 

In another thread, the business of passing parameters with self-directed URLs was discussed.

 

In the course of testing this, I experimented with passing repeating variables of the form $var[N]

 

They don't seem to work. The square brackets seem to be recognized as text but not as repeat identifiers.

 

You cannot display repeating variable as merge variables on a layout.

 

However you CAN display square-bracket merge variables on a layout.

 

You can see square bracket variable in the variable watcher.

 

But you cannot set another variable to a square bracket variable.

 

All a bit strange.
