If gvim, it probably means your font doesn't have the glyphs for those
characters: see http://vim.wikia.com/wiki/Setting_the_font_in_the_GUI
If Console Vim, it could be _either_ the font (which is handled by the
terminal, Vim has no action on that), _or_ a misunderstanding between
Vim and the terminal about which charset (for which locale) to use for
reading and writing. If the former, try setting a different font if yout
terminal allows it. If the latter, and you change 'encoding' in your
vimrc, try saving the _old_ 'encoding' value in 'termencoding', e.g. as
if has('multi_byte') " if not, bypass the whole multibyte rigmarole
if &enc !~? '^u' " if not already Unicode
if &tenc == "" " avoid f*ing up kb & terminal communications
let &tenc = &enc
set fencs=ucs-bom,utf-8,latin1 " for example
" the following are optional
" they mean: create new files in Latin1 by default;
" create new Unicode files (if 'fileencoding' is manually set)
" with a BOM by default.
" warning: some fileypes (e.g. anything with #! in the first line)
" should not have a BOM (and, in most cases, be in US-ASCII so
" Latin1 should be OK for them).
setglobal fenc=latin1 bomb
echomsg 'Warning: this Vim version has no multibyte support'
" note: Vim versions with no expression evaluation (which usually
" also have no multibyte) will treat the whole if...else...endif
" block as a nestable comment (and give no message here).
see http://vim.wikia.com/wiki/Working_with_Unicode (and the help topics
mentioned there) for details about the above snippet.
