[Rd] typesetting a matrix in an Rd file

Hello everybody

I'm trying to write an Rd file so that the resulting LaTeX-ed document includes a matrix.

Here is the line in question:



       1 & x\theta\\
       x\theta & x^2\theta^2
       }{ommitted: see dvi}

which looks OK to me; the contents of the first curly brace produce the desired matrix in a regular .tex file.

But it doesn't produce the desired matrix when included in an Rd file: on my system the ampersands show up literally, and the whole equation is on one line. I suspect that the backslashes and ampersands are being escaped somehow, and TeX isn't interpreting them as desired.

How do I write an Rd file so that the output of R CMD Rd2dvi includes a nicely typeset matrix?
