TTML test player and Netflix questions

Hi guys (and gals?),
Trying to make Netflix complient TTML files (by the way, is the extension 
..ttml of .xml?),
and have found the W3C validation tool at skynav.
Now, nice to know if my files are valid, but i have no idea how they will 
look at Netflix.
(From Netflix specs i see there is no requirement to define font /fontsize / 
outline / color)
More important, i'd like to test text postition and alignment. And that's a 
bit hard for me to guess.
(Still trying to understand box region / size in combo with before/after and 
the difference between start and left / end and right)

So my question, is there any software player out there (preferrably Windows) 
that can read the TTML files and display titles the way they are intended?

As for Netflix, they clearly specify that they use a proportional font, but 
on the other hand a line can only have 42 chars, no matter the content.
Isn't that a bit strange?

thx,

Bouke
