Hi Ron,

The parenthesis are displayed correctly ! I had just tryed it with
Mma3.0 on Solaris. Your problem is a bit different. Mma uses
the characters H and L from the Math2Mono postscript font to display
parenthensis "(" and ")". I think the fonts are not properly installed in Your
PostScrip-preview/printer/word processor. 
That is not a problem of Mma. To give You furture hints I must know

- the operating system You are running (Unix/XWindow ?, Win95 ? ...)
- You PostScrip previewer (ghostview ?, ghostscript?)
- and the publishing software (TeX ?) where You want to 
  include the pictures when You are printing
I can probably help with Unix & MS-Windows, not with Mac or Next.
Hope that helps
