For translators, clicking a segment causes the Segment Editor to pop up, allowing you to edit the translation in that segment.
For reviewers, clicking a segment causes the Create Segment Comment box to pop up, allowing you to add comments on translations in that segment.
You can use a [superscript] tag to show the exponent.
For example 103 = 10[superscript]3.
