I'm using xelatex, and the font I use has absolutely horrific square brackets (KerkisSans - the left square bracket is smaller than the right and also none of them is square!). I want to change them with brackets from some other font. How can I do that?

Keep in mind that I need text mode, so something like redefining \lbrack, \rbrack won't work.

[Edit] MWE:



[aren't these brackets horrible?] 

[also was this MWE \emph{that much} needed?]    


Thanks in advance

  • please provide small but complete document by which we can reproduce your brackets ...
