Friedrich Huebler (fhuebler@gmail.com) asked whether the new font/symbol
features in Stata 11 graphs also support Unicode:

Unicode/multibyte characters are not yet supported by -graph-.  However,
this is something we know is desired, and so the code underlying the
features documented in "[G] text" has been written with future Unicode
support in mind.
