  I dont have a Windows machine to hand, but wouldn't it be better to 
insert the table as an Excel spreadsheet? Get the data from R into Excel 
and then you should be able to insert the sheet into Powerpoint. Then it 
will look pretty.

  Write the table out with comma separators, and read into Excel. Or 
maybe the DCOM package will help:
