I guess you mean the graphics drawing characters of codepage-437, which is very 
definitely a DOS relic.  Even Windows support for it these days is not 
widespread outside of the command console.

Unicode has these characters and more. See etc/charsets/ in the Emacs 
source distribution (or installed under /usr/share/emacs or similar path), or for mappings.
