Based on what I've read in these books and elsewhere, I get the impression that R is very good at drawing high quality graphs but maybe not so good at creating nice looking tables of the sort I'm used to getting through SAS ODS.

I often make tables of adverse events in clinical trials that have n(%) values in the cells. I'd love to see an example that does a nice job of making that sort of table but would be happy to see any examples that someone might be willing to send to me.
