A bracket link is what you get when you create a link to a wiki page by putting words in brackets.

An example:

[BracketLink] links to the page BracketLink.

BracketLinks allow you to deviate from the old Wiki way of CamelCase, i.e. you no longer have to MashWordsTogether to produce a link. For example, bracket link is as good as BracketLink. This produces more readable documents.

Q:How do you place bracket in links? For instance how do you create a link to "bug 123 links can't have brackets"? Or how do you create a link to "mailto:email@address.com?subject=topic"?

A: Brackets are illegal in URLs (and WikiNames), so you need to use different styles of encodings. For example, "[" would produce a left bracket, like this: "[". The full list is available in http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/html3/latin1.html.

A further example. This

[[bug 123] links can't have brackets|Bug:123].
produces this:

No InterWiki reference defined in properties for Wiki called "Bug"!.
