Are you sure they are ASS subs and not SRT or something similar?
Anyways, read bugreports.html

These are softsubs too, but are called picture or vobsub (instead of textsub).
No, rc2 does not support colour rendingering of vobsubs. (no idea whether

The true CS students do not need to know how to program.
They learn how to abstract the process of programming to
the point of making programmers obsolete.
