Has anybody figure out how to do this? I need to put a superscript in SDLX that is not in the source. I know you can change the font type, underline, put italics and boldface in the target only if you want, but cannot figure out how to put a superscript. I know I could just do it in the clean file, but I want it in the itd as well. What I need it for is for ordinal numbers in Spanish, 2.o, etc. (the "er"and the "o")

Any suggestions?

insert a "sup" tag Jan 3, 2009

Hoping it's not too late to give you an answer.

In your tagEditor document, open the segment you want to translate, then select the character(s) to set as superscript.

Right-click, choose "Insert tag", and use the drop-down list in the dialog (click the arrow) to select "SUP".

TagEditor inserts before your selection and after your selection (the tags might be slightly different if the source file was not html).

You then validate the segment as you usually do. The program will ask you to confirm that you really want to add these tags, say Yes... and it's done.
