Renzo Comolli (renzo.comolli@yale.edu) asked about including quotes
in a -window menu- item action:
> I now upgraded to Windows XP but the original bug is still there.
> . window menu append submenu "stUser" "DoEdit"
> . window menu append item "DoEdit" "My Dissertation" `"doedit "C:/Documents
> and Settings/Renzo Comolli/My Documents/Here/my dissertation.do""'
> 
> Still gives the following error message when you click on the menue 
> . invalid 'and' 
> r(198);

In the current executable, quotes are being stripped from the
item action.  Thus, Stata sees only

   doedit C:/Documents and Settings/Renzo Comolli/My Documents/ ...

when the menu item is selected.

We have fixed this in our code here at Stata, and it will be
available the next time an executable update is released.
