Defines functions lazy.list

Documented in lazy.list

#' @name lazy.list
#' @export lazy.list
#' @title Lists in LaTeX and HTML
#' @description Produce code for lists in LaTeX documents
#' @param item A vector with the items to be placed in the list
#' @param ordered Denotes if the list is ordered or bulleted
#' @param counter For future inclusion.  Specifies what counter 
#'   should be used for numbering.  Currently not in use
#' @param counterSet The value to which \code{counter} should 
#'   be set.  In other words, the number for the first item in the 
#'   list
#' @param title A title for the list
#' @param style A character string denoting how the ordered list 
#'   should be numbered.  Options are \code{"arabic", "roman", 
#'   "Roman", "alph", "Alph"}.
#' @param symbol A symbol for bulleted lists to be used as the bullet
#' @param font Font to be used in HTML documents.  Defaults to the 
#'   font set in the options
#' @param family Font family to be used in HTML documents.  Defaults 
#'   to the font family in the options
#' @param size Font size to be used in HTML documents.  Defaults to 
#'   the font family in the options
#' @details  With \code{style}, the options produce the following and 
#' apply to both LaTeX and HTML:
#' \tabular{ll}{
#'   arabic \tab Arabic numbers\cr
#'   roman  \tab Lower case roman numerals (i, ii, iii, ...)\cr
#'   Roman  \tab Upper case roman numerals (I, II, III, ...)\cr
#'   alph   \tab Lower case alphabetic ordering (a, b, c, ...)\cr
#'   Alph   \tab Upper case alphabetic ordering (A, B, C, ...)\cr
#' }
#' The given options for \code{symbol} follow the HTML conventions, 
#' but when \code{options("lazyReportFormat")} is \code{"latex"}, 
#' these options are translated into the appropriate equivalent.
