Thanks to Martin & Sergey for solving the problem. Once I had the answer, I found Nick Cox's article http://www.stata-journal.com/article.html?article=pr0042 and Alan Riley's FAQ http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/lang/backslash.html helpful in figuring out why the double backslash works.

The following code using Ben Jann's wonderful -estout- (SJ) produces a
summary statistics table in latex format.  The -substitute- option lets me
substitute "\%" for the "%" which appears in a variable label.  I have not
been able to figure out what combination of compound quotes, etc. is
necessary to turn a "$" into a "\$".  I suspect that Stata reads the dollar
sign in the -substitute- option as indicating an empty macro, but neither
that suspicion nor a search of the help files or web has turned up a
solution.

Thanks,
