A »strange small square« means in xft that your font is missing some‐
thing. The line drawing issue is a bit more complex. The gfx code is
from corefonts and not supposed to work with xft.

For those alternative charsets remapping some ranges of the symbols is
required, which could be easily done using UTF‐8 characters.

This alternative charset mode is really obscure.
