This all looks very helpful indeed. I will sift through it shortly.
I hope I didn't offend with "less than coherent". I'm aware that one of the
major strengths of Stata is the user community. "Less than coherent" is a
large improvement over "less than available". I was hoping that Stata Corp
was listening. Since Stata is a multi-platform system it seems natural to
provide a single publishing solution that is supported on all platforms, so
I am advocating more tightly integrated, official Stata LaTeX support.
In the meantime you have provided a huge help which I greatly appreciate.
