Brackets in subject line

In researching subject lines, several sources recommend using brackets in your subject line. However, it looks like Constant Contact thinks that's code and that I'm wanting to personalize the subject line. Is there a way to use brackets to emphasize text?


Hello @CampbellSci ,


Thank you for reaching out about this! Due to the fact that we use square brackets for our personalization coding, you would not be able to use them to add emphasis to certain words. However, this guide will help you take your subject lines to the next level! 


Please let us know if you have any additional questions about customizing your subject line.
