I think it would be great to have tools to edit the text formatting of the target segment. More often than not, the formatting of the source text is different from that of the target text (style and typography change from one language to another); and it is inefficient to store in our TM segments that we shall have to edit in the finished document each time we (re)use them. They should be stored with the proper text formatting.

Similarly, something else than just numbers to label the tags would be helpful. Hovering the mouse over a tag does not say much to the lay person, as even a tag for bold text looks obscure. A better understanding of which tag is which would help decide whether a tag really needs to be transferred to the target segment.

What do you think?
