Richard is absolutely right and I stand corrected. The interaction term
command that allows for continuous-by-continuous interaction terms, in addition
to those involving categorical-predictor variables, is -xi3- from Michael
Mitchell and Phil Ender. It's an extension of -xi- that is downloadable from
SSC or from the ULCA site. -help xi3- (after installing the package) will

I stand corrected too because I have -xi3- and didn't realize it could do this! Also, it includes the lower order terms along with the interaction, which is good, e.g.

xi3: reg y x1*x2

results in y being regressed on x1, x2, and x1*x2.

-xi3- has a lot of other nice options too.
