Dear R-devel,

I'm encountering a strange problem in a Rd file that I'm working on.  In the
"Value" section, I have something like:

  An object of class \code{randomForest}, which is a list with the
  following components:
  \item{call}{the original call to \code{randomForest}}

  For classification problem, the following are also included:

  \item{err.rate}{final error rate of the prediction on the input data.}

  For regression problem, the following are included:
  \item{mse}{mean square error: sum of squared residuals divided by

  If test set is given (through the \code{xtest} or additionally
  \code{ytest} arguments), then there is also a \code{test} component,
  which is a list with the following components:
  \item{predicted}{predicted classes/values for the test set.}

  Note:  The \code{forest} structure is slightly different between
  classification and regression.

In the resulting help page, the passages between \item{}'s all disappeared!
Is there any way to make it work?

Thanks a lot for any tips!
