Nick, Graham:
Only a few characters can cause problems, and 2 of them are 10 and 13
which I did not deal with in my prior post:

sysuse auto, clear
la def r 1 "`=char(10)'worse" 2 "`=char(96)'bad" 3 `""OK""'
la val rep78 r
ta rep78
foreach var of var rep78 {
 loc la: val lab `var'
 if "`la'"!="" {
 qui levelsof `var', loc(ls)
 foreach l of loc ls {
loc v: label `la' `l'
loc g: subinstr local v `"`=char(34)'"' "`=char(148)'",all
loc g=subinstr("`g'",char(10),"",.)
loc g=subinstr("`g'",char(13),"",.)
loc g=subinstr("`g'",char(96),char(39),.)
di "`g'"
la def `la' `l' "`g'", modify
  }
 }
}
numlabel, add force
ta rep78
