I was hoping that someone might be able to suggest the simplest and/or most
efficient way of using European (specifically, Eastern European) characters
in Stata.  I have searched the obligatory places, and found nothing.
I am currently working with a dataset of Croatian villages, many of which
have diacritical marks (over (and through) c's, z's, s's and d's).  What I
have done in the past is to "insert" the letter I want (from an appropriate
font type) into an MS Word document, "copy" the letter and "paste" it into
the Stata Command window.  This, however, does not work for the character c
(both upper and lower case).  When I import a c (be it with a "hacek", or an
"accent aigu"--for those familiar with French), it simply reverts to the
normal c (without diacritical mark) in the Stata command window.  I can,
however, paste all the other letters with diacritical marks, without any
problems.

Furthermore, I am using hbar to graph certain properties of these villages,
and have the names of the villages as the legend on the y-axis.  Is there a
way to ensure that the eastern european characters make the journey from
dataset to legend in the graph unscathed and intact?

Thanks in advance for your help.
