The standard boxquote looks like this:

,----[ title ]
| Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Morbi et
| dolor vitae quam fringilla vulputate ac id sapien. Nullam auctor
| consequat magna in fringilla. Praesent sed dolor vel felis
| condimentum faucibus eget in risus. Phasellus dignissim vehicula
| purus, non tempus arcu rutrum vel.
`----

However, since Emacs now has perfectly good Unicode support, the
following shows boxquote configured to use standard Unicode line drawing
characters with rounded corners:

(set-variable 'boxquote-bottom-corner "╰")   ; U+2570
(set-variable 'boxquote-side "│ ")           ; U+2572 + space
(set-variable 'boxquote-top-and-tail "────") ; U+2500 (×4)
(set-variable 'boxquote-top-corner "╭")      ; U+256F

╭────[ title ]
│ Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Morbi et
│ dolor vitae quam fringilla vulputate ac id sapien. Nullam auctor
│ consequat magna in fringilla. Praesent sed dolor vel felis
│ condimentum faucibus eget in risus. Phasellus dignissim vehicula
│ purus, non tempus arcu rutrum vel.
╰────

Much nicer!  It would be great if these could be made the default in
place of the ugly ASCII.

Roger

Ah, sorry, I didn't realise it was part of an extension package
(emacs-goodies-el).
