On Windows, not mentioned!  Probably a pre-compiled binary, not mentioned.

You must be looking in the wrong place:  
http://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/contrib/2.0/ has 0.10-11.

Something you have done has overwritten the versions of packages for 2.0.0 
by those for 1.9.x.

There is currently no Windows binary version of R2HTML for 2.0.0, as a
valid source version was only released this morning.

Undo whatever you did to cause this.  Preferably start with a clean 
directory and reinstall from rw2000.exe.
