New Bracket Notation for Drafting Emails

There has been some confusion amongst our hard-working editors over what constitutes email copy that needs editing versus instructions to them. For example, if your email says:

Dear Bill,
Tell him that I'd love to meet tomorrow.
Regards,
John


Our editors can interpret "Tell him that I'd love to meet tomorrow." as instructions from John or as the actual message John wishes to send to Bill, under the assumption that Bill and John just had a conversation about a third party with whom John wants to meet and with whom Bill is associated. To clearly delineate instructions to our editors, please put instructions in square brackets []. In the above example, if the sentence was an instruction to the editor, the bracket notation should be as follows:

Dear Bill,
[Tell him that I'd love to meet tomorrow.]
Regards,
John
