That is the way it works currently - the macrobegin and macroend characters default to "<" and ">" respectively but you can set your own character. (The parser looks out for doubled macrobegin and macroend characters to recognise a macro token).

Personally I would prefer "[" and "]" because they are unshifted; but I just wonder whether the parser might get bamboozled when encountering double square brackets that belong to the Delphi code, rather than the macro syntax...I guess that's the cost of operating with multiple parsers...
