[R] Sweave, xtable and font size

Hi,

I'm using Sweave with xtable to generate Latex tables. My problem is that some of the tables are too wide, and I would like to use the tiny font for these tables, but not for the others nor for the text. I can't work out how to accomplish that.

The Latex code below does what I want it to, but I have to insert the "\tiny{" and the closing "}" by hand. It originated from these commands in my .Rnw-file:

<<yearmale, results=tex>>=
yearmale <- with(chol, table(year,male)) yearmale <- rowpct(yearmale) <<yearmale, results=tex>>= print(xtable(yearmale,caption="My caption"))
$

LATEX CODE:
\begin{table}[ht]
\begin{center}
\tiny{
\begin{tabular}{rlll}

  \hline
 & Kvinder & Mænd & Total \\
  \hline
1998 & 1335 (75\%) & 437 (25\%) & 1772 (100\%) \\

  1999 & 1232 (74\%) & 425 (26\%) & 1657 (100\%) \\
  2000 & 1427 (74\%) & 502 (26\%) & 1929 (100\%) \\
  2001 & 1407 (74\%) & 493 (26\%) & 1900 (100\%) \\
  2002 & 1493 (71\%) & 611 (29\%) & 2104 (100\%) \\
  2003 & 1684 (75\%) & 566 (25\%) & 2250 (100\%) \\
  2004 & 1565 (73\%) & 567 (27\%) & 2132 (100\%) \\
  2005 & 1629 (74\%) & 586 (26\%) & 2215 (100\%) \\
  2006 & 1448 (72\%) & 553 (28\%) & 2001 (100\%) \\
  2007 & 1582 (73\%) & 590 (27\%) & 2172 (100\%) \\
  Total & 14802 (74\%) & 5330 (26\%) & 20132 (100\%) \\    \hline
\end{tabular}

}
\caption{My caption}
\end{center}
\end{table}

Can anybody help me? Thank you in advance.

Best regards,
Peter.
