st: Inserting percent and currency symbols in graphs

Dear list users,

this question has come up before, but I am asking again as I hope
Stata 12 has an enhancement or that someone has written a new package.

I will be doing a number of reports this year and am trying to
automate graphics creation. I will be creating over 100 graphs with
percentages and currency levels.  The reports are for a non-specialist
audience (i.e. the public) and I want to be as explicit as possible.
That means labeling lines, points, bars, etc. with the currency and
percentage symbols as needed.

While I could manually add in the percent and currency signs I need
for graphs using the Graphics Editor, I would like to be able to sleep
at some point in the next three months.  I would much prefer
programming my .do file to insert those symbols for me. Short of
converting all my data from numeric to character and using -mylabel-,
or having someone else do manual editing, is there a command line
solution to my problem?

I need to be able to label within a graph for figures that use -graph
bar-,  -twoway tsline-, and -twoway xtline-.

thank you!
Carolina
