Be careful, don't do mistakes related to Bold\Italic, Uppercase and so. In about 5 min you will have a subtitle that can be played.
You know, I did a brief search about SubRip after I read your post. It looks like a neat tool, but it looks like it's intended for people who have the original DVD (or the original subtitle source) with them. And they run SubRip on the DVD's *.vob files to extract the subtitles, convert them into text, and save them to a text-file. It's a little different for me. What I have are the idx/sub files, so the subtitles have already been ripped. I don't have the original subtitle source. I don't know, would SubRip be useful in this case? I didn't read anything that would indicate that.
