This is another very good suggest to help beginners.  I absolutely agree 
that the curly braces need to stand out (red, probably).

ALong this line, I suggest renaming the "balance delimiters" function.  For 
a long time I expected it to actually do something, such as locate curly 
brackets that weren't properly closed.  Perhaps calling it "identify 
delimiters" or "show delimiters" would give a better sense of what it really 
does for beginners.
