Hi John,
I wrote the htmlize function (with a lot of associated functions) in the 
prettyR package to allow R scripts to be output as HTML files. That 
package also includes the R2html (and associated) functions contributed 
by Phillipe Grosjean, which performs a similar function. There is also 
the earlier R2HTML package by Phillipe and colleagues. The advantages of 
output to HTML is that the output can be displayed with any HTML browser 
and it is very easy to copy parts of the listing such as tables and drop 
them into word processing documents. Works very well with Open/Libre 
Office and even MS Word.
