Toyoto's request may not be fully comprehensible
to you, depending on fonts available on your system, 
for reasons similar to those behind the question. 

What are wanted here are 
	subscript 2 
	superscript -1. 
	and a mu symbol (for micro). 

I don't know a way of getting the first two, but I'd like 
to underscore the request. 

mu and some other characters can, depending on fonts
available, be obtained by using -char()- or {c #}. 
For example, mu is obtainable on my Windows machine 
as char(181) or within text as "{c 181}". 

There was a write-up of this in the Stata Journal 
Stata tip 6: Inserting awkward characters in the plot.
