I can't have inputText within repeat?!!!!

Controller:
public class TestRerenderController
{
    public List<String> text { get; set; }
    
    public TestRerenderController()
    {
        text = new List<String>();
        text.add('a');
        text.add('b');
        text.add('c');
    }
    
    public void hi()
    {
    }
}

VF page:
<apex:page controller="TestRerenderController" id="p">
    <apex:form >
        <apex:repeat value="{!text}" var="t">
            <apex:inputText value="{!t}"/><br/>
        </apex:repeat>
        <br/>
        <apex:commandLink action="{!hi}" value="Click me" reRender="p"/>
    </apex:form>
</apex:page>

Error when saving the page:
Error: Unknown property 't'


What gives?!

This is the definition of apex:inputText according to the official documentation:
A merge field that references the controller class variable that is associated with this field.

I'm just guessing but maybe because since "t" is not a variable (it's one item of a collection that's a variable) it's not working. Whereas when you use the wrapper it's a variable on the object.

As per the definition: apex:repeat : An iteration component that allows you to output the contents of a collection according to a structure that you specify.

Thanks Sonam. I'm not sure; if I use a string variable within a wrapper class the inputText suddenly (and magically) works. See this thread:

Today doesn't seem to be a good day..
