Quirks in R and Formatting Tables

A short slide deck that illustrates a few gotchas in R. I had to discover most of them the hard way, and there is really no single source of information that would list most of these issues. Well, Harry Paarsch and myself are hoping to fix some of it with our forthcoming book, but it still has to get printed first.

The second point is more of a pet peeve of mine: formatting tables with data for readability. I found this fantastic illustration of the "less is more" principle; as usual, a picture is worth a thousand words.
