    It's possible, with some regular expression jiggery pokery. Some variation on this – vancoder Apr 11 '13 at 18:59

Regular expression jiggery pokery identified:

$categories = wp_list_categories('title_li=&show_count=1&echo=0');
$categories = preg_replace('/<\/a> \(([0-9]+)\)/', ' <span class="count">[\\1]</span></a>', $categories);
echo $categories;

    nice solution @vancoder, but preg_replace might be a better choice because ereg_replace is deprecated since php 5.3, according to php.net/ereg_replace. – birgire Apr 11 '13 at 19:45
  • @birgire Excellent point, answer updated. – vancoder Apr 11 '13 at 20:47
