Thank you, Michael! I expanded on it.

ffmpeg -i "%SOURCE_NO_SUBS%" -i "%SUBTITLES_1%.srt" [-i
"%SUBTITLES_2%.srt"..] -map 0 -map 1:s [-map 2:s..] -c:v copy -c:a
copy -c:s mov_text "%TARGET%.mp4"

VLC & MPV both play %TARGET%.mp4 just fine. Microsoft will not play
it. PowerDVD crashes.

Regarding Method 3, jacknorthrup.com no longer exists. It was parked
at GoDaddy in 2021. I couldn't find anything informative at
