-- begin included message --
I am trying to create a classification tree using either tree or rpart
but when it comes to plotting the results the formatting I get is
different than what I see in all the tutorials.  What I would like to
see is the XX/XX format but all I get is a weird decimal value.  I was
also wondering how you know which is yes and which is no in each leaf of
the tree?  Is yes always on the left?

You will need to give more detail:
   "all the tutorials" --- certainly not the rpart technical reports, so
to what do you refer?
   "xx/xx format" --- for what?  You haven't told us what the response
variable is.

  If you do print(fit) that will help you interpret the result of
plot(fit) and text(fit).
