[] are not. That's because the brackets belong to the prior level of syntax as they define the block, but are not contents of the block. Also it's easier to spot breaks between adjacent blocks when the brackets stand out. I disagree with Carl's reasoning here, but I can cope with it. I prefer the better human readable style like this example: repeat Index Width [ Column: make block! Width foreach Row Matrix [ insert/only tail Column Row/:Index ] insert/only tail Results Column ] Andrew Martin Style Curmudgeon ICQ: 26227169
