Setting charset in MDVD subtitle file

Has anybody succeded in setting charset using control codes in MDVD subtitle file? According to MDVD documentation, there is a following control code for setting charset:

With this you can set the charset for the font to use. You need this to e.g. tell the player that the chosen font has a greek, russian, hebrew etc. charset.
Attention: This control code is only valid in the {DEFAULT} line

I have some subtitles in russian, but I couldn't set charset using that control code. I've tried {DEFAULT}{}{H:russian}, {DEFAULT}{}{H:cyrillic}, but in both cases MDVD reports the same error: "Unable to process Subtitle File! Error: General error (wrong format?) Line Number: 1".

I've tried some other options like {H:english} or {H:german}, but it didn't work either.
Of course it is not a big problem - I can always set charset in subtitle options section of MDVD Configuration Dialog. But it is not as convenient as setting charset directly in subtitle file. Has anybody any experience with that? Thanks a lot.
