Paul, that should be "chcp," not "chip."

Dear Edward

I have tried this in VDos and in VDosPlus but I see no change. What should I be looking for?

I haven't tried this, but it should work in vDos, and perhaps also in vDosPlus:

In autoexec.txt include:

chip 1252

In config.txt change

font = WhateverFontNameYouUse


font = -WhateverFontNameYouUse

with a minus sign immediately to the left of "Whatever"

This causes vDos to display line-draw characters instead of whatever characters are native to the font.

Again, not tested in vDosPlus.
