Hi there,
I've got ISC 386/ix 2.02, and have been using vi with some files
that contain extended characters (8th bit set).  These appear on
vi as e.g. \272.  How can I force vi to use the extended characters?

Can I have a snappy answer to this one please, i.e. same day, as I
have to show this to a customer tomorrow morning!  Note my local time
is GMT-12 hrs (New Zealand).
