# Square brackets in math mode without the bracket symbols

Is there a way to typeset a square bracket without using the symbols [ and ]?

What I am looking for is like `\vert` instead of `|`.

Motivation is a need for a workaround in using LaTeX formulas inside Moodle wiki pages. The latter use square brackets to start a new page (like [page-name]), and this functionality interferes with scripts processing LaTeX formulas (which otherwise are ok in Moodle HTML/wiki).
