This is because you are not using the right font. xterm-like terminals
which do no support unicode - I guess Eterm is one of them - expect
that the glyphs for the line drawing characters are found in cells 0-31.

yes/no: some terminals draw the lines directly:

        modern xterm does (draws lines using X calls)

        kterm draws into bitmaps which are then BLT'd to the display
        (appears it did this before xterm, though I didn't notice)

        MGT copied code from xterm to do this

        gnome-terminal paraphrased the xterm code (no comment ;-)

The last I checked, konsole doesn't. I seem to recall noticing one of the rxvt family doing this, though I agree it probably wasn't Eterm.
