Either way, it's the documented behavior: If “false”, xterm checks for missing glyphs in the font and makes line-drawing characters directly as needed. If “true”, xterm assumes the font does not contain the line-drawing characters, and draws them directly. The default is “false”. By the time it displays that Greek pi, xterm has forgotten whether it got there because of the VT100-feature or via some UTF-8. I'll add a table to that part of the manual page to help make this instance clearer. -- Thomas E. Dickey <dic...@invisible-island.net> https://invisible-island.net ftp://ftp.invisible-island.net
