      To figure out whether Vim at least sees the right character, you can press ga on top of it in normal mode. That should tell you the character being used, and you can see whether it is the right one. If Vim sees the right character but that character is not displayed, then probably your font needs changing.

      Are you using a GUI version of Vim with an X server? Or running it in the putty terminal window?

      If you're using the terminal version, I don't actually know how to change the font being used. I'd say it's a pretty good chance whatever the default is won't have a glyph for fancy Unicode characters.

      If you're using the GUI version, try a few fonts by brining up the font dialog:

      :set guifont=*

      Once you find one you like, you can add that to your .gvimrc. See http://vim.wikia.com/wiki/Setting_the_font_in_the_GUI
