It is not clear what your problem is, precisely; 
nor it is clear that there is any problem 
with -dstdize- that prompts modification of the 
code. 

Where value labels exist, they will be echoed. 
That is in the code. As said, the reason why 
one example in the manual appears as raw 
values is that in the data set in question
the variable in question lacks value labels, so there 
are none to echo. 

Please give a concrete example of the 
output you are getting, explaining why 
it is problematic in your view.
