[OS X TeX] Equation full of Brackets

What's the best way to get a complicated equation, full of fractions, 
square roots and such right the first time?

I have a 1988 HP calculator with about 1k of memory into which I can 
enter this kind of equation and if I miss a bracket it takes me right 
to the spot. Piece of cake. Not so Tex.

What I do is take a screen shot, print it, get out about 7 different 
color highlighters, make myself a cup of tea and study the thing. 
This still usually fails the first attempt.

Surely being a Tex user doesn't mean that I'm supposed to get USED to 
this? Does it? Are there any plans to make the program friendlier for 
this task? Should I have to use real (hard and wet) highlighters when 
they could be built into the program?

Thanks for any help.
