I am trying to include the content of a macro within a graph, but I'm
having problems with the display format.  

For example:

sysuse auto, clear
qui: summ length
twoway scatter length mpg, text(200 35 "The mean of length is:
`r(mean)'")

How do I change the format of the macro to display something like %9.2f?

I tried:
... , text(200 35 "The mean of length is: `%9.1f `r(mean)''")

Am I missing some triple compound quote? :-)

Thanks,
Thomas
