I have a Microsoft Word file (.docx) containing tags like h1, p, a href, b, etc...
The tags are in between brackets, but Studio 2014 doesn't recognize them as tags. They appear in the sdlxliff file as plain text.

How can I teach Studio to recognize these tags and show the purple indicators instead of plain text?

... to prepare the file in MSWord, if you are sure it's not already prepared in some way. Sometimes word files that have markup language (html, xml etc.) pasted into the file have also been prepared using a special style for the tags that Studio can be told to ignore. But if not then you can do this yourself with a little Word regex.
