Hi experts!

I need to save text to a Word doc from my appl. using a monospaced font (aka old MS Linedraw)
for this I have chosen Courier New, but how can I access the "extended" chars
in this font? It appears to me that these are only available from inside Word.

I need the special chars to build/draw a box (DOS-like) :  ┌ ┐┬└ ┘┴

If there is a solution to this, please add a little code-sample.

Regards
