Thanks, Maarten. I was actually using the "less than or equal to" symbol as part of a variable label, and not as part of a command.

The do-file editor won't recognize the less than or equal sign because Stata
won't recognize that symbol. The way to say "less than or equal to" is <=.
For more info see: -help operator-.
