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.
