I have two questions on graph, note()

- how can I use a " sign within a note text, that is, how can I mask the quote sign, that stata will not recognize it as the end of the note text. \" as usual in programming languages don't works.

Use compound double quotes.

. scatter mpg weight, note("some "quotable" results here!"')

- in a note text, I want to put a single word in italics, for example "source" should be something like this:

. sysuse auto
. graph bar rep78 foreign, note("\textit{source:} text text text ...")

Good question. I am not aware that you can mix fonts within
a graph title.
