Using variant selectors for the chess border variants allow for both glyph variants. Maybe it does not make much difference in a proportional font. But for a "mono-width" font the terminal emulator versions for these border characters would be "narrow", but the chess border versions should be "fullwidh"/"square" (compare CJK in terminals; double the width of, e.g., Latin characters).

Hm. Time for me to put VS support into Everson Mono, than, and see what happens. But I think you’re probably right, though.

Tak for hjælpet.
