The title is self explanatory. The "upper" string function does not
work on "special", non english, characters.
I´m using Stata 11, but it appears that this problem remains in Stata
12, as this tread on similar problems with the "lower" string function
indicates (http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2012-04/msg01177.html).
Solution is simple, but annoying.
Could StataCorp just patch that?

best regards
Lucas
