Hi phoebe,
If you don't need PDF, you can get an HTML display of this sort of 
matrix using the delim.table function in the prettyR package:

delim.table(SY,file="SY.html",delim="<td>",tabegin="<table border=1>",

You can embed a table like this into an HTML formatted output file of an 
R session using the htmlize function and calling delim.table to format 
the table.
