Description
Use of old syntax that allows alternate to [ and ] causes problems for ErrorInsight
Steps to Reproduce:
Make a new project and add in this constant

const
  Nums: array(.1..2.) of Integer = (1, 2);

Compile project to prove it's acceptable syntax where (. is an alternative to [ and .) is an alternative to ]

Note the squiggly showing EI has no idea what's going on. Also note the completely bogus made-up errors it adds in the structure pane
