I've also seen them used in place of quotation marks when denoting part of a conversation.

Brackets are frequently used in the promotional blurbs in the books front matter, often to denote words or sentence fragments inserted by the editorial staff. Omerta probably did not use such editorial devices.
I have seen some occasions where brackets are used in the body text of a regular novel instead of italics, or once again, as editorial insertions.
So, the bottom line is: handle with care. Square brackets are people too!

Omerta is probably the kind of book where there were no square brackets. But there is nothing that should have been removed and the BRF file is perfect. It was a good book and a pleasure to read because of the absence of errors and junk chars.

If there are no square brackets in a book I submitted it is because there were no square brackets in the print copy. During the proofing process I search for every char available from the keyboard which is not purely alphanumeric or common punctuation and take action on an individual bases: remove, replace with another char, or leave it alone as needed.

I''m reading a book in brf that Guido submitted and there are no brackets at all... So either the braille translator removes them or the validator remooved them.. Tere is no junk at all.

Guido, Do you know how the brackets will look in the Bookshare braille version; that's what I'm concerned about.
