But, than that would not be SRT ;) Maybe there is some software called SubRip for ripping titles from DVDs, and from this we have extension srt...

MPlayer is the best media player for GNU/Linux. There is win32 port too, but this port doesn't have GUI :(

In my opinion just .utf is better. I think that most of players automatically recognize format of subtitle file no matter what it's extension is.

But the best solution seams to be no new extensions, but automatically recognization if .sub, .srt, etc file is in UTF-8 codeset. And without any inline indentificators. I do not know how to do that, but I know that is possible. UltraEdit does this UTF indetificaton very well...
