There are at least four more simple alternative ways available to avoid
colored single brackets:

1) Use cells with style "Text"
2) Convert the input cell to InputForm first.
3) Put comment signs around: (* ( *)
4) Put string quotes around: "  (   "

You anyway have to remove or complete those open brackets before execution
of the statements.

Best regards

Ingolf Dahl
