@Aaron Ok. Here's the stackoverflow question: Sweave doesn't seem to get .Rnw file encoding right. Let's see what happens.

comment Sweave generating invalid LaTeX
@Aaron Checking mine, the two are also the same, so you're right. I woudn't mind to get to the bottom of this. Is there an appropriate R forum/list that might have some answers?

comment Sweave won't create PNG images
This is very close to being off topic, (namely an R problem rather than a Sweave/TeX problem) unless you can provide more information.

@Aaron I wonder if the problem is the locale from within the R.app (which is correct) vs. the locale when R is called from the command line.

comment Sweave generating invalid LaTeX
@Aaron I thought about that, but it doesn't seem to help. On my Mac, sessionInfo() returns en_US.UTF-8, yet with the .Rnw file saved as UTF8 the document still produces NAs.

Duplicate of Defining commands/abbreviations that contain numbers. The simple answer is that it's marginally possible in some cases, but not recommended.

comment Front-end for pdfpages
What do you mean by a front-end? This could easily done with a cgi-form and run on a local web server. On OS X you could quickly create an Applescript to do this too. There may be similar abilities in other OSes.
