I attach an R function "outreg" that can make nice looking regression
tables in various formats.  I was thinking about writing something for
R news about this, but stopped to wait because I could not figure a
way to get lmer objects to print out in some pleasant way.  I have
several students and colleagues who use this, no problem lately.

This pdf demonstrates some of the kinds of output it can create.


The R code here is not pretty, I'm obviously trying to do things that
are not anticipated by the original developers.  I found it a bit
tedious to do output with "cat" and so forth, but never found a more
elegant way.

If anybody wants to help with beautifying the code, please give me
some pointers.
