Where and when should you use "[" and "]" in a sentance?

Also, what are they called?

I cannot find anything on google as it comes back with a blank page.

(English is not my thing)

Oh, did I forget to add a full stop, or is that a period? Pray tell, what IS a "sentAnce"? might be interesting.

Period also, i learn't that a few months back as well.

You must be chuffed, I learned it much earlier.

  powerless 01:28 19 May 2003

Yup.

Although it is an American term. If i'm not mistaken?

  monkeyshine 01:34 19 May 2003

What, learn't, I don't think so.
