[R] Displaying Equations in Documentation

I'm currently working on writing up some documentation for some of my
code, but am having the darndest time coding in equations. For
example, the equation in the following:
\details{ Calculated the R Squared for observed endogenous variables
in a structural equation model, as well as several other useful
summary statistics about the error in thoe variables.
R Squared values are calculated as
\deqn{R^{2} = 1-\frac{estimated variance}{observed variance}}
Standardized error coefficients are then calculated as sqrt(1 - R^2).
}
While it shows normally using R CMD Rd2dvi, when I actually compile
and load the package, displays as follows:
R^{2} = 1-frac{estimated variance}{observed variance}
I have also tried
\deqn{R^{2} = 1-\frac{{estimated variance}{observed variance}}}
and
\deqn{R^{2} = \frac{1-{estimated variance}{observed variance}}}
with the same result - Rd2dvi is happy, but the display is still wonky
in practice. I've also tried subbing in \eqn{R^{2}} in the rest of
the text in a few places, but, again, it shows as R^{2}. Is there
something I'm missing about inserting equations into R documentation?
