Phil,

thank you. I was not aware of <viewsource>.

I'm still puzzled about this (undocumented) wrapper... what's its
purpose? Prompting me to ask the statalist? :)

More seriously, my conclusion is that <verinst> is no longer
available/working in Stata 10, and will fix my lecture notes
accordingly.

Best regards,

Giovanni
