Ok .. What I did was create a site in FlashFXP with [ and ] in the name, and then opened the Sites.dat ..

What I found is [ gets changed to þ, and ] gets changed to ÿ .. Now, what happens if some goober wants to use þ or ÿ in their site name? FlashFXP now thinks that it was supposed to be a bracket. So the problem isn't really solved, just made more rare. Perhaps FlashFXP should just prohibit those characters from being used in the site manager completely (along with any other special characters).
Those two characters have been used all along to replace [ ] and it has never been an issue. I'm not entirely sure why those specific characters were choosen. It would have made more sense to use control characters but it's too late for that now.
