I notice the Pico-8 font has some semi-graphical characters, but not quiite enough to make a real retro text-mode UI out of.
I'd love to see some of the old DOS box-drawing characters added to the pico font if there's space for a few more glyphs.
You know, I was just wanting the same thing the other day. I concur.
On the other hand, you can literally call rect() as needed to render the boxes, saving you the bother of padding strings with spaces.
Ah, I think I still like the idea of having box-drawing chars. :) I give my thumbs up to the idea.
