comment How can I check what version of the VI editor I have?
Also this answer does not address the other part of the question: upgrading or installing Vim on Solaris.

comment How can I set VIM's default encoding to UTF-8?
That might be generally useful so I have added it to the answer.

comment How can I set VIM's default encoding to UTF-8?
fileencodings=utf-8 will cause Vim to recognize the input file as UTF-8 but then perform a lossy conversion to Latin-1. Plus it will cause Vim to fail to recognize UTF-16. The better solution is to set encoding=utf-8 which turns Vim from a native one-byte editor into a native multibyte editor.
