*Lines take a certain number of frames. There are frames with no spoken dialogue. What do you do with them? Usually, since the subtitles are meant to be read, and different people need different amounts of time to read them, it's best to leave the subtitle up until the next one comes in. For example, if a line by Strong Bad goes from frame 1112 to 1132, and Strong Sad speaks at 1145, Strong Bad's subtitle should be set to 'start="1112" end="1144"'. However, if a change of scene occurs, or an exaggerated pause presents itself, you might choose to use the "black space" between subtitles to express this.

*Now, how do you know that it's <code>"strongbad"</code> and not <code>"Strong Bad"</code>? These IDs are defined [[Subtitles:Characters|here]]. Every character has his or her (or its) own ID that you can use to indicate who is saying what. You have to use one of the IDs listed in that file. Of course, new characters will be added over time.
