Palindromes are words, phrases, representations of numbers or times which read the same in reverse, for example "level", "reviver", "12321", "10:01". See also the [balanced-string] tag.

Palindromes are words, phrases, representations of numbers or times which read the same in reverse, for example "level", "reviver", "12321", "10:01".

Note that strings like ()() are not palindromes although it looks like they should be. When you reverse this string you get )()( instead. For challenges involving correctly paired characters, consider using tag instead.
