ASS encoding field

Does anyone know where I can find the specs to explain the different values for the encoding field in ASS subtitles?
I have a subtitle with an 1 in the encoding field, and haven't been able to find an explanation of this value.

About the only decent reference I've found is a pdf file called "Sub Station Alpha v4.00+ Script Format." It is a modification of the original SSA format specifications.
Does anyone know of more good references?

Field 18:	Encoding. This specifies the font character set or encoding and on multi-lingual Windows installations it provides access to characters used in multiple than one languages. It is usually 0 (zero) for English (Western, ANSI) Windows.
			When the file is Unicode, this field is useful during file format conversions.
I know 128 is Japanese.
