Alas, I don't have an answer, but I would like to second the request and extend it:  if 
anyone has any suggestions as to how to allow Stata to work with datasets that contain 
text in unicode/UTF-8/UTF-7, then I would appreciate hearing about it.

With a compatible operating system and a suitable set of fonts, it seems that it ought to 
be possible to work something out using -file-, which -outtable- calls.  But the method, if 
there is one, eludes me.

I'm guessing that this kind of enhancement to Stata is on the long-term development 
project list, but if there's some workaround available in the meantime . . .
