Most builds of Vim should support UTF-8 as long as the terminal in
which you're using it does. Check the output of ":version" to see
if "+mutli_byte" is set. If you have vim-tiny installed, it may not
have been built with multi-byte, so you can install what's usually
called "vim-full", "vim-nox", or just "vim".
There's a good description regarding getting Unicode/UTF-8 working
on the wiki at
Hope this helps. And if you're not a Vim user, I'm sorry that I
can't be of much help. :-)
