Double brackets in footnotes

+1
−0

While typing the initial draft of a post, or editing an existing post, footnotes appear in the preview in superscript in square brackets, like this:

Footnote with single square brackets during editing

However, after saving the post, the footnotes appear in superscript in double square brackets, like this:

Footnote with double square brackets after saving

Am I correct in assuming that the double square brackets are unintentional, and that the appearance in the preview during editing is the desired format?


(Note that the functionality is working fine - clicking on the superscript footnote label takes you to the footnote, and clicking on the return link at the end of the footnote takes you back to where you were reading - in both preview and saved post.)
