Special SRT formatting not parsed correctly

Special SRT formatting like {\a6} is not being parsed correctly (as of SVN-r32345). For example,

{\a6}TN: Blah, blah, blah.

appears as is, instead of appearing at the top of the screen (without the "{\a6}"). My last MPlayer compile from 2010 May (sorry, I failed to take not of the SVN version) doesn't display this problem

SRT is SubRip?. You shouldn't have ASS tags ( in it. If you want that kind of markup, just use the appropriate ASS/SSA format:

If you want markup in SubRip? files, you have a few HTML tags, but nothing relative to the alignment stuff.

At the moment, mplayer explicitly backquote the '{' and '}' to avoid them being parsed when sent to the libass. Not all players do that, but this is the right thing to do.
