Not so sure about that. My guess is that the developers of StataCorp put
this in because they wanted it themselves at a time when reissuing a
command line was a bigger deal than it is now. And once in, circa 1985,
it stayed in. 

If you want to emphasise an -if- there are other ways to do it: 

local BIGIF if round>7 & round<26 & win==1 &  offer==1

table risk info `BIGIF', c(mean return) row col

As people say, hereabouts at any rate, there's a big "if" attached to
that.

That is good to know. Sometimes I want to give the -if- qualifier more 
prominence and this is the way to do it....
