   As far as I know, you have to use one mode or the other. I write the *.Rnw file in R mode (via RWinEdt). I then Sweave the *.Rnw file and open the *.tex file it creates in LaTeX mode. There is typically nothing I do with the *.tex file other than turning it into PDF (and I do this within WinEdt in LaTeX mode). If anyone has a different approach they think is superior, I would like to hear about it too.
