I'm unassigning myself for now, since I shan't have time to look at this in the near future.

If anyone else wishes to improve this feature, then please feel free.

Michel Boaventura <michel.boaventura@gmail.com> reported that pspp-mode.el mis-displays words in comment commands introduced by * that contain non-ASCII characters such as ç. In particular, the following:

shows up as in the attachment.

My own investigation convinced me that what is happening is that pspp-mode is interpreting the words in the comment as part of a command. Most words are interpreted as variable names, since they are not the names of PSPP commands or functions, etc., but "divulgação" is special because pspp-mode does not think that ç and ã are valid characters in a variable name (they should be, I think, but pspp-mode is not smart enough to know that).

pspp-mode is supposed to understand that * starts a comment. I don't know why it isn't getting that correct.

Assigning to John since he's the author of pspp-mode.el. John, if you don't want to deal with this, feel free to un-assign yourself or to assign it to me.
