Developers --

Sweave-style vignettes often include copy-pasted versions of basic LaTeX macros 
and other commands. We've created the BiocStyle package to make it easy to add 
these macros, and a consistent style, to Bioconductor vignettes -- just add 
Suggests: BiocStyle to your package DESCRIPTION, and the following lines inside 
the preamble (between \documentclass{article} and \begin{document}) of your vignette

<<style, eval=TRUE, echo=FALSE, results=tex>>=

Details, including illustration of macros and styles, are in the package vignette


and on the ?latex help page. Suggestions welcome. Perhaps this can be extended 
for non-Sweave vignettes.
