comment How to prevent text generated with `Sweave` from running off the right margin?
thanks for your answer and the link. This is the answer to the question I asked but my code was so ugly that it still couldn't break the lines. Once I cleaned up the code per @chl 's suggestion, it all worked well

I was unsure if TeX or Stackoverflow would be the best choice for Sweave questions. Since it seems like the problem is with the typesetting and not the code, I chose here first but let me know if you think this would be better for SO.

comment What is a good strategy for obtaining comments on a LaTeX document from non-LaTeX using collaborators?
@Seamus - I think I would have had better luck achieving World peace than I would have at getting my committee members to use LaTeX.

comment How to manage LaTeX files in a directory?
Thanks for the suggestion, I don't have a lot of experience with version control (although I should use it for my manuscripts) but do you find that this system is effective even for documents that will likely have very few versions (like a brief class assignment)?
