[R] HTML nsmall vector format problem

Hello All  

I am having a bit of trouble formatting my HTML with the desired number of digits after the decimal place. Am I doing something wrong/misunderstanding or is it a bug?  

Looking at the example supplied with ?HTML.data.frame:  


Gives html output that includes the lines:  

</tr> <tr><td class=firstcolumn>1</td><td

class=cellinside>5.100</td><td class=cellinside>3.500</td></tr>

<tr><td class=firstcolumn>2</td><td class=cellinside>4.900</td><td

My understanding of how nsmall works, as a vector, the output should be something like:  

</tr> <tr><td class=firstcolumn>1</td><td class=cellinside>5.100</td><td class=cellinside>3.5</td></tr>
<tr><td class=firstcolumn>2</td><td class=cellinside>4.900</td><td

i.e. first column with 3 digits after the decimal place and the second column with 1 digit after the decimal place.  

It appears to only use the first value in the vector.  

Has anybody got any suggestions?  

Thanks for any help.
