It should work if the font you are using has the necessary glyphs
(this isn't a given; try changing the Source Code Font/Size in
preferences) and the file encoding is picked up correctly (best
to use an encoding comment at the top of the file or make sure
that your Files / Default Encoding preference is set right).

Please let me know if that doesn't help.
