Create a utf-8 .ass file in Aegisub and use it. No need to mess with charsets, since utf-8 is able to encode all the characters you might use.

Actually charset (text encoding) still has a use on Windows, unfortunately. Some fonts can't display all characters correctly unless the encoding is set right. Yes, even for Unicode text. (The problem shows for fonts that don't have Unicode tables.)

The Encoding values are those of the Win32 API. I don't have a list of them handy, but if you use Aegisub you can easily pick the right one from a list. (You might want to try using the encoding 1, that's "default" and supposedly can auto-detect to some degree.)

Actually the Charset codes correspond to Windows code pages. The Charset code for UTF-8 is 65001. If you use that it will display most any character you want...
