Greetings Robert!
It can certainly be done, in various ways (including pic, and
PostScript tricks). However, there can be complications of
detail to get it to look nice (e.g. when using fonts which
are not constant-width).

At the moment I'm too short of time to write a proper account,
but will produce something later this weekend.

Best wishes,
