the spec seems to be there:

i got the info from the matroska ssa page:
maybe it contains some usable info for you too...

there is a matroska sample file

which contains ssa subtitles (in around 10languages)..

you can use mkvtoolnix

to extract them so you can try them also as external files.

hope this helps,
