As the manual "Writing R Extensions" suggests, please write your 
documentation in the Rd format. Those files are converted automatically 
to latex and html (among other format) when the package is installed.

Skeletons for the help files can be generated using prompt() or for a 
whole package, see ?package.skeleton.
