General guide for creating publication quality tables using R, Sweave, and LaTeX

There are a range of tools available for creating publication quality tables using R, Sweave, and LaTeX. In particular, there are helper functions like `latex` in the `Hmisc` package, and `xtable` in the `xtable` package. I've also often written my own code so that I could have complete control over table formatting (e.g., see [this example](http://jeromyanglim.blogspot.com.au/2010/11/sweave-tutorial-2-individual.html)). However, when preparing publication quality tables a range of issues often arise: * how and when to apply numeric formatting * how to precisely control alignment of columns and cells * how to precisely control cell borders * how to convert variable labels to variable names * and so on Beyond the high level issues of specifying the desired table format, there are issues of implementation. * When should a helper function such as `xtable` be used? * Which helper function should be used in a given situation? * How can the default output of helper functions be customised to particular requirements? ### Question It seems to me that the above issues are deserving of a detailed textbook-style introduction. **Are there any online or offline resources that provide a detailed overview of how to produce publication quality tables using R, Sweave, and LaTeX, and that address the issues discussed above?**
