[R] documenting s4 methods in package

Thomas,
Correction! If I remove the \seealso line the missing ~~fun~~ disppears
(thank you!), but now "chm" appears at the end of the line decribing the
help page building. Most lines do not have that, only "text htm1 latex
example". What does the chm signify and how does one get rid of it?
Thanks,
Steve

Thomas,
If I delete the \seealso section, I still get the same strange behavior.
Shouldn't removing that line fix the problem?
Thanks,
Steve

No. It means that you still have \link{~~fun~~} in the \seealso
section.
