Peter Ekstedt (ekstedtp -at- anz -dot- com) asked:
What are the correct names for the following?

1. [square brackets]
2. {curly brackets}
3. (common or garden variety brackets)

Everyone in my office, including myself, thinks that (common or garden
variety brackets) are called parentheses. What about the others?
************

Peter, everyone in your office is correct about the parentheses.

{braces, or curly braces}
[brackets]
(parentheses)
