The particular issue is the correct
representation of Sidak's name, which
in TeX would be

\v{S}id\'ak

i.e. hacek(*) or circumflex accent sitting on the S and
an acute accent on the a.

Using the same configuration as Roger, except Windows
XP, and Stata's own fonts, I find that

. di "Sid{c a'}k"

shows the accent correctly in the Results window, but
the corresponding element in a .hlp does not
show correctly in the Help window (Viewer).
The hacek(*) I don't know how to do.

(*) This word should itself be accented.
