David, that solution worked because Stata checks whether that
particular graphic option (title, note, etc) is a single string or a
list of strings. If that is a list, each item is placed into a
separate line. This does not seem to apply to the marker labels, and
embedding char(10)/char(13) also does not produce a desired effect.
