Works for me. I suspect this is a problem with your small caps font. Please post a more complete Example (with preamble). – Stephan Lehmke Mar 30 '12 at 11:51
I'm guessing the font you are using doesn't have bold smallcaps ó. Most fonts don't include bold smallcaps at all, let alone accented characters. – Roelof Spijker Mar 30 '12 at 11:52
@RoelofSpijker These are oldstyle LaTeX font switching commands. They don't combine like \bfseries, for instance. – Stephan Lehmke Mar 30 '12 at 11:54
@StephanLehmke: Of course, you are right. So the problem most likely is that the smallcaps font is missing that accented character. – Roelof Spijker Mar 30 '12 at 12:01

Check this:

\subsection*{\label{#3} \textbf{\textsc{#1} #2}}{
\rule[1em]{\hsize}{4pt}\vskip -1em \vskip .1in #4

Also pay attention for trailing spaces:

  \subsection*{\label{#3}\textbf{\textsc{#1} #2}}{%
  \rule[1em]{\hsize}{4pt}\vskip -1em \vskip .1in #4}}
