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?
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?**
