the support is of course quite limited (basically to latin-ish
characters I would guess) and that is the reason of the major re-
engineering that has been happening with the font rendering for vim 7.
So if you are trying to produce kanji, kana or something more exotic
you must go to graphical vim7 (which I don't recommend) or use vim
with a terminal as was suggested.
