Thanks! I didn't know about the extended set. I always thought ASCII only takes 7 bits.


ASCII is 7 bits. "Extended ASCII" isn't ASCII but is just a misnomer for the full 8 bits character set available on PC.

If you really want to you can disable the blink ability and use it to switch to a 9-bit "ASCII" mode, where 82% of your characters aren't ASCII. ASCII printable is 32 to 126 inclusive - anything outside that range doesn't technically have a graphical representation in ASCII, but you can of course make a font that displays something for it.

Which is the root of this entire thread; you've got some rendering tool that you don't understand and you're sending it arbitrary font character IDs in the hope to find something that you like.

I suggest finding out what the rendering tool actually uses as a font and then to use that knowledge.

I've been so stupid... I'm tried to display characters not in signed char range. Now I'm know it.

I'm not exactly sure where you got those codes from.
I've always used these extended ascii codes for my window/borders.

179 = │
196 = ─
192 = └
217 = ┘
191 = ┐
218 = ┌

197 = ┼

193 = ┴
194 = ┬

195 = ├

180 = ┤
