Vim not showing some characters

I'm using slackware 12.2. The problem is that vim, cannot show characters form 0x80 to 0x9f range. I't doesn't matter what encoding is set, If the symbols are in this range 0x80-0x9f, they are not shown. Instead vim shows ~B ~V ~D ... and so on. Can anybody help me?
