Hi,

Not sure if this is a bug or intended behaviour. I want to fill a TABLE
row with "[<number>]", but the leading left bracket causes some problems
here. I tried the syntax 'print(string.format("[%d]",10)' in pure lua
and the result is as desired.

%% --------------
\starttext

\startluacode
context.bTABLE{}
context.bTR()
    for i = 1,8 do
    context.bTH() context(string.format("[%d]",i)) context.eTH()
    end
context.eTR()
context.eTABLE()
\stopluacode

\stoptext
%% --------------

gives

and empty TABLE cells. Any help welcome.
