TMPlayer is the simplest possible subtitle format. There are 2 variants: with short time codes and long time codes (more popular). Line breaks are created with | character. You can only specify when the text should appear and not for long. Most programs either display every line for 3 seconds or calculate how long the text should be displayed based on it's length.
Example (long codes)
00:01:02:-First line of text|-Second line of text 02:03:44:Another line
Example (short codes)
0:01:02:First line of text|Second line of text 2:03:44:Another line
