The teletext standard defines a teletext subtitle flag that any subtitle
page should have set. Specifically, its the C6 flag, placed at byte 11
bit 8 of line 0 of the teletext page. (see cTxtReceiver::DecodeTXT of
OSDTeletext on how to get that flag.)
However, I don't know how consequently this flag is used. The C5
(Newsflash) flag also sets a transparent background, and could be used
alternatively. Other transparent pages could also falsely set the C6 flag.
It also may be a good idea to interpret different teletext pages as
different subtitles, in case a channel has more than one subtitle page.
