Unicode characters appear in regular old vim in the terminal (iTerm), but not MacVim. Is there a way to get MacVim to handle Unicode characters appropriately. If it helps, I installed them using homebrew.
I grabbed these lines from the Vim Wiki:
if has("multi_byte") if &termencoding == "" let &termencoding = &encoding endif set encoding=utf-8 setglobal fileencoding=utf-8 "setglobal bomb set fileencodings=ucs-bom,utf-8,latin1 endif
