Using R with LaTeX via Sweave is a great way to create reproducible output. However, using specific fonts, e.g. your corporate fonts, can be painful with pdflatex. Over the last few weeks I have fallen in love with the TeX format
XeLaTeX and its XeTeX engine.

• attaching files,
• trimming and clipping images,
• learning how to use the tikzDevice package.

Please find the Sweave file of the above document below:
