In addition to what's been said (I don't know what context you are coming from), it might be for some extra chars that are not part of ASCII. See for example <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CP437>, where they are (were) used for ←, ∟, and ↔. On character-based displays, it was handy to have special chars for box drawing borders and such.
