I was just playing around with Rstudio (I use Stata and R) and its new 
markdown capability (dependent on knitr and other packages). The point 
I wanted to make is that it is now *easy* to produce very nice HTML reports, 
without knowing LaTeX. This is one feature that Stata seems relatively 
behind with--dynamic reporting.

Over the years we have seen various solutions, some quite intricate, 
and we know the -file- command can create any markup output, but that 
is not easy as one click "knitting" in RStudio. I have used the very nice 
texdoc command in Stata. It has been brought up before that Stata Corp 
might make it easier to use light markup languages for report generation 
(markdown, reST).
