I'm looking for the ones from 128-255 at  If you open 
KcharSelect there are 8 rows, with the characters going from 0-255 so the 
bottom 4 rows are the extended 128-255.  I've used some of the math symbols 
like 251, 245, 244 159 and the Greek characters like 225, 234, etc.    I 
think all those exist in the higher tables of different fonts but I have to 
try and search/replace little squares with the correct ones, but If I can 
find a font that has them in the place already it will be easier.  I think I 
either used a terminal font in windows or edited a font to make what I need.
I've been searching for font editors but haven't found much.
