Hi Andy,

I don't have any knowledge on whether there are hidden tags available,
though I would suspect not.

The getQuote function, along with yahooQF in quantmod interface yahoo
to get the data alluded to by gummy-stuff.  It is generally useful,
though some Yahoo functionality/return data isn't supported perfectly.
 That said most everything I have tried works.


and yahooQF()
