Regarding your first query, simply enclose the note in compound quotes, as e.g. -note(`"This note contains "quotes""')-

The second query is much less straightforward and I am not aware of any way of doing this short of getting hold of (or creating) a font which has italic text in ascii codes above 128 and using the -char()- function to display these. See the recent thread on Greek characters in graph titles.

Dear Statalisters,

I have two questions on graph, note()

- how can I use a " sign within a note text, that is, how can I mask the quote sign, that stata will not recognize it as the end of the note text. \" as usual in programming languages don't works.

- in a note text, I want to put a single word in italics, for example "source" should be something like this:

. sysuse auto
. graph bar rep78 foreign, note("\textit{source:} text text text ...")
