hi list,

first time around here: I'm a happy user of `vile' for several years now and wouldn't go back to the original vi, nvi, vim, or elvis (tried out in that order...). a big thank you to the author(s)!

usually I'm running `vile' in an urxvt (or xterm) terminal in x11 under MacOSX. but by and then I want to use it in the native `' coming with macos. here's the problem: despite `' being set up for utf-8 character encoding, vile displays non-ascii characters by their hexcode such as \u00E4. opening the same file in the same `' window with one of


displays the utf-8 (non-ascii) characters just fine. what am I doing wrong? any ideas?

best regards,


ps: observed with vile version 9.8 for darwin13.4.0, installed Mon Oct 27 17:14:05 2014
and macosx 10.9.5
