Dear Herb,

I think this is a beautiful idea, and since I use XeLaTeX a lot (to write my opera librettos to learn them) I will apply this key binding!

> What I'm going to tell you do is NOT what you originally asked for, a match of delimiters, but it will always give you a matching closing delimiter (» or ”) when you enter an opening delimiter (« or “). Open the Key Bindings File for Editing: Click Source->Key Bindings->Open Key Bindings File… In the first box enter « and in the second box enter «#SELE#INS#» and then Click on the + button. Do the same for “ and “#SEL##INS#” and the + button. You can then Click the Save button. From then on when you press « you will automatically get «...» where ... is any selected text followed by the insertion point. You get a similar thing when you enter “.
