    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.
