I don't think you can, at this time.  Kim Storm added a feature which
allows you to control the size of the fringes, or even make them
disappear entirely, but there's no way to resurrect the text-mode
continuation glyphs yet.  (The GUI display code on the C level has the
graphics glyphs hard-wired into it.)

Do it the X way: use the resources.  On Windows, the resources should
be put into the Registry instead of the ~/.Xdefaults file.  See the
node "Resources" in the manual for more details.

There's a Windows-specific magic to do that, check out the NTEmacs FAQ
(available from http://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/windows/ntemacs.html),
it tells how to do this, IIRC.
