mmthor is an unknown quantity at this point

There was report that BSPlayer would have been able to handle UTF-8 file? Really? I've just used it since last year, but I've never heard of its ability to do so. Too bad.

On the other hand, I understand that a lot of people dislike BOM. But even if it's not required, I hope BSplayer won't ignore it or misinterpret it if it's present.

Or maybe a simpler solution is to use a new extension. Why are subtitle files called SRT, by the way? If S stands for "sub" and T stands for "title", what does R stand for??

I would suggest calling UTF-8 (only UTF8 but not UCS2, UCS4 or UTF16) subtitle file extension as .ust. How's this sound?
