\{ and \}

just kidding :-D
I would be ok with {L} and {R} - easy on eye and easy to remember.
Why don't ask how would I represent double-quote character?
It's more important, but I would not use double quote as string delimiter,
I'd use {} as delimiter:

  s= "\"s\""   ->
  s=  {"s"}

is much better.

Raw strings - as I suggested here like 3 weeks ago or so?

S = `op`
    multi-line raw string block
    parsed by indentation
