# Enumerate sentence beginning with square bracket

In the enumerate environment, an item begins with "[Co]image is..." LaTex interprets the square bracket as a customized bullet symbol. How can I write [ without this glitch?

\relax FTW:

\item\relax[Co]image

This also works:

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}

\begin{enumerate}
\item{}[Co]image
\end{enumerate}

\end{document}

@tohecz You're right - it's gone... Thanks! –  cfr Apr 21 '14 at 22:03
@tohecz FWIW, I'd already voted for your solution. However, I bet I would still use {} here because I'd never think to use \relax in a document - only in code. (Mostly, I want something done but nothing typeset as opposed to nothing done at all and \myhellomacro{} bird! \myhellomacro\relax plane! does right by bird but not by plane.) –  cfr Apr 21 '14 at 22:30
And I would use \myhellomacro\ bird or \myhellomacro\@ bird ;) –  yo' Apr 22 '14 at 15:20
@tohecz I used to use \myhellomacro\ bird and then I read about some reason \myhellomacro{} bird is preferable. Although I cannot remember what the reason was. I've never come across \@ - what does that do? –  cfr Apr 22 '14 at 15:29

You could also simply put a {} around the text. .

## Notes:

• Adding an additional brace group is also a handy technique and useful for cases where you need to pass a parameter containing a [].

## Code:

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}

\begin{enumerate}
\item {[Co]image}
\end{enumerate}
