st: -proper- with portuguese/spanish characters

Dear listers
Stata 12.1 on a Mac OS X (10.6.8)

Any idea how to get -proper- to correctly format a string variable that has Portuguese/Spanish characters. As an example

-  di proper("ripão poraqueíba") -

gives me

RipãO PoraqueíBa

Stata caps the first letter right after the portuguese character (even when this letter is in the middle of the word).  

This behavior carries through for whole variable so for example, the same result as above would result from  

gen name2 = proper(name)

Thanks,


Ronnie
