Thanks, Jeff. The Task View page was very informative.

To answer your question, I'm using ggplot to generate my plots and grid/gridExtra/gtable to place those plots on a page. 

Considering that there are ways to add text on a page through textGrobs, independent of the plots, I was wondering if there was a similar functionality for adding lines. Also noticed a package called pagenum for adding page numbers. 

knitr is certainly interesting, but might be an overkill for what I am trying to do (creating basic multipage reports with basic headers, footers).
