All it takes is a couple of short sentences.

    "*Numeric Intervals.* Closed intervals are denoted with square
    brackets and open intervals with round brackets. For example, [0,
    10) denotes the values from zero to ten, including zero but not
    including ten."

I agree with Glenn that using intervals would be clearer as well as
being shorter.
