Hi Mark,

[collection] was added in Greenstone 2.61 to get around a problem when
using cross-collection searching. It is set automatically by the
Greenstone run-time code. If you aren't using cross-collection searching
you should use _cgiargc_ instead, which will also give you the internal
collection name.

If you are using cross-collection searching then check you aren't using
[collection] outside a format statement. Otherwise, this could be a bug
(please send your format statement to the mailing list).

Hope this helps,
