Do you have a suggestion to solve the following problem without using printf(1):

I have a text file that I want to print in a "box" on a terminal from a shell script. Now I've padded the lines with spaces to a certain length using printf %-70s and appended the box drawing character. Is there another simple way that will work with utf-8?

My first thought was about dialog(1), but I'm not sure whether that deals with UTF8 any better...?
