[owasp-antisamy] Losing brackets when using antisamy-anythinggoes-r239.xml

Hi Folks,
I'm new to using antisami, I'm using antisamy-anythinggoes-r239.xml to filter content for an intranet-type ColdFusion site that's for the most part closed to public access. I just implemented an internal email newsletter for their employees, and there's a feature that allows them to put [firstname] in the newsletter content and have the recipient's first name substituted for that when the newsletter gets sent out.
My issue is that antisami is stripping out the brackets around [firstname] so the substitution doesn't work. Wondering if there's a way around that in terms of tweaking the xml file--I couldn't tell where the brackets are being stripped--or if there's another placeholder character besides brackets that wouldn't get stripped.
