When using X Windows, you can request a more powerful alternative kind
of automatic parenthesis matching by enabling Show Paren mode. This
mode turns off the usual kind of matching parenthesis display and
instead uses highlighting to show what matches. Whenever point is after
a close parenthesis, the close parenthesis and its matching open
parenthesis are both highlighted; otherwise, if point is before an open
parenthesis, the matching close parenthesis is highlighted. (There is
no need to highlight the open parenthesis after point because the cursor
appears on top of that character.) Use the command @kbd{M-x
show-paren-mode} to enable or disable this mode.

By default, @code{show-paren-mode} uses colors to highlight the
parentheses. However, if your display doesn't support colors, you can
customize the faces @code{show-paren-match-face} and
@code{show-paren-mismatch-face} to use other attributes, such as bold or
underline. @xref{Face Customization}.
