Hello all, 
       Could someone attempt to explain this to me? I just can't get over this hump. 

local m1= title[1]
local note1 "note" "(" `"" 1  `m1'" "' ")" 
local note2   1 `m1' 
di "`note1'"
note(" 1  2011" )

di "`note2'"
1 2011

tsline hits, "`note1'"
invalid syntax although if you write it out, it would be  tsline hits, note("1 2011") which looks fine 
tsline hits, note("`note2'") stata is happy
