The point of that Stata tip is that you should look at odds ratios,
which you already got by specifying the -or- option in -xtlogit-.
Trying to estimate odds differences is a lot harder when you have
covariates, and especially within a random or fixed effects context.
So I would forget about the latter.

Hope this helps,
