If you have vobsub installed, check out:

C:\Program Files\Gabest\VobSub\Docs\ass-specs.doc

Or you can get it at:

if you're using .ssa or.ass you can use the \pos tag to position the subtitles. You tell the script the height and width of the video (i.e. PlayResX: 720 PlayResY: 400) a lot of programs will let you add this just by clicking a button to get the dimensions (aegisub)

All you have to do it add {\pos(<x>,<y>)} before the line..

If you just want to have text appearing above the current line you could just type in the new text then use the newline (\N I think) and add the old line (so you have the old line is the same place and the newline on top)

Uhm, you can use Aegisub.
It has \an tags and the topright would be \an9
