No, the problem was very bad formulated by me. The problem was that I had a 
subtitle file in which every character was kept on 16 bits, not on 8 as usual, 
and that is why Xine cannot read this file. The characters were kept as

Char = <a number of 8 bits> < zeros >

I tried to have this file into a format that xine recognize by using 
query-replace. Query-replace replaced zeros with " ", but it kept every char on 
16 bits.

So the problem was bad formulated by me, because I did not know so far what the 
encodings are.
