    Does this Generate glyphs like the following ascii- & utf8-art?

            +--+ ┌──┐
            |AB| │AB│
            |CD| │CD│
            +--+ └──┘

    (Both included for the benefit of the utf8-impaired.)

    I find it interesting, if so, that Apple uses a font to acheive that
    rather than a bit of code in the rendering libs. I beleive that
    pango (Παν語) does it in the lib.
