Description

I stumbled upon a bug in IE (tested with IE 7 and IE 8), when i used a square bracket within a name query. For me it's an essential function! I attached a quick example.

True but you didn't escape the *other* character that isn't valid in a name, the period. Please ask for help in the forums and/or read the documentation I linked to before opening tickets, thanks.
