brackets are already answered in the other mails.

begin/end is not on the wiki (yet), but it is in the Options dialog 
under > Editor > Display > Markup and Matches

It is called "Word Brackets on caret"

There is a listbox with: "Procedure","Begin/end", "repeat" .....
you can select each entry and check "Markup (on caret), to get the highlight

*  "Procedure" will highlight 3 keyword: Procedure, begin, end,
* "Begin/end (procedure)" highlights only the begin and end of a 
procedure block

You can choose the kind of highlight (eg change back color, instead of 
frame) in the "Colors" page of the option dialog.
