    How do you use them, and where to find them.

    I'm have seen some guys are using Ú Ä À ¿ ³, when making a box for some text.
    The Ú Ä À is normally to use, but where do I find the ¿ ³ keys..?

    A box is made like this.

    printf(" ÚÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ¿ \n" );
    printf(" ³ ³ \n" );
    printf(" ³ TEXT........... ³ \n" );
    printf(" ³ by ³ \n" );
    printf(" ³ ³ \n" );
    printf(" ³ http://www.xxx.xx ³ \n" );
    printf(" ³ ³ \n" );
    printf(" ÀÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÙ \n" );

    And how does these keys works...?

    NOT NECESSARY

    you can get them from your keyboard easily:

    e.g:

    press: ALT + 130 (must be a digit with three numbers) ;
    output >> é

    i use it to write "José."

    Is damn UNICODE

    [159]>> ƒ

    [147]>>ô

    [789]>>§

    [753]>>±

    .....

    and keep on going..

    you could use ASCII

    Code:
    #include <stdio.h>
    
    int main(void)
    {
     /* Example of ASCII, ~B~ 
        prints a smiley face to
        stdout 
     */
     int smiley = 1; /* ASCII number for smiley is 1 */
     printf("%c",smiley);
     return 0;
    }

    Cool Drawing Boxes

    Here is something as well.

    #include <stdio.h>
    #define MAX 40

    int main()
    {
    int col=1;

    for (col = 1 ; col <= MAX ;col++){
    if (col == 1)printf("\xc9");
    else if (col == 80)printf("\xbb");
    else printf("\xcd");
    }

    system("PAUSE");
    return 0;
    }

    cheers
    And To All Those Opposed, WELL !!!
