To John and everyone else,
Please add Hmisc::latex to your how-to-make-beautiful-tables-in-r document.
We first included latex() in S in 1995, and it is still actively
maintained and improved.

Here are the first few lines of ?latex
Convert an S object to LaTeX, and Related Utilities
Description:
‘latex’ converts its argument to a ‘.tex’ file appropriate for
inclusion in a LaTeX2e document. ‘latex’ is a generic function
that calls one of ‘latex.default’, ‘latex.function’, ‘latex.list’.
‘latex.default’ does appropriate rounding and decimal alignment
and produces a file containing a LaTeX tabular environment to
print the matrix or data.frame ‘x’ as a table.
‘latex.function’ prepares an S function for printing by issuing
‘sed’ commands that are similar to those in the ‘S.to.latex’
procedure in the ‘s.to.latex’ package (Chambers and Hastie, 1993).
‘latex.function’ can also produce ‘verbatim’ output or output that
works with the ‘Sweavel’ LaTeX style at <URL:
