Dear Listers,

When announcing the update to outreg2,  Roy writes that

I also find smcl a bit difficult, writing a help file is not a pleasure (probably I miss
some necessary skills). Did StataCorp considered or does consider in the future other languages? 
HTML for example? I just discovered by chance that even SPSS 14. can
produce almost publication quality HTML log files.  

Best,

Tamas
