I bet xoops forces you to use the non-standard [] delimiters so that you cannot insert arbitrary html code.  If it had no means to verify code, users could insert malicious javascript and such.  Input verification should be possible without having to use non-standard notation... Perhaps it is faster to search for the [] tags and apply rules to them rather than checking all the <> tags.
