The text "consecutive lines displayed below each other" is talking about the
writing direction, not subtitles.

We can't use "after" since this is _defining_ the word "after". (e.g. writing
on roadways in English-speaking countries is written left-to-right
bottom-to-top, with subsequent lines appearing "after" each other being above
each other, not below.)
