Can anyone recommend X11 fonts that will allow me to have ascii graphics where characters will show up correctly instead of question marks in my terminal(especially irssi)?

vga :D

At least these definitely have the line drawing characters of the olden day IBM PC.

I have vga*.pcf.gz installed that came with installing Dosemu.

But you may have a different issue, perhaps it has something to do with what your locale is set to for your terminal emulator, whatever it is...
