These two are ok and I will add them:

But I'm not sure about the others. Is it really a good idea to map the
backslash to the forward slash, and some other characters to line drawing
characters? Please note that I'm not saying that it is a bad idea (I'm not
sure about it), I'm just trying not to be hasty.

For all those that don't have a PET table laying around:

> \      0x5c    0x2f (or 0x5f if 0x2f causes probs)

0x2F is the forward slash, 0x2F is the left arrow.

0x27 is a small dot in the middle of a character cell.

0xAA is a vertical bar on the left side of the character cell.

Same as 0xAA but on the right.

0xA3 is a horizontal bar at the top of the character cell.

Should I really use these mappings? More opinions?
