#' Tables So Beautifully Fine-Tuned You Will Believe It's Magic.
#' 
#' The \code{pixiedust} mission is to provide a user friendly 
#' and flexible interface by which report-quality tables may 
#' be rendered in multiple output formats.  Initially, 
#' \code{pixiedust} will support markdown, HTML, and LaTeX
#' formats, as well as methods for console output.
#' 
#' The advantage of \code{pixiedust} is that it gives you the
#' control to alter the appearance of a table by as little 
#' as one cell at a time.  This fine-tuned control gives you
#' enormous flexibility in how the final table looks with 
#' minimal pre and post processing.
#' 
#' Additionally, \code{pixiedust} is largely built on top 
#' of the \code{broom} package, allowing for simple and 
#' fast generation of tables based on analytical results.
#' 
#' The chief disadvantage of \code{pixiedust} is that it 
#' can be extremely verbose.  If you are applying many
#' customizations, you will find yourself writing a 
#' great deal of code.  
#' 
#' @section Options: 
#' 
#' \code{pixie_bookdown} determines if references and labels are 
#' managed using the \code{bookdown} package methods.  This should be set 
#' to \code{TRUE} if you are rendering documents via the \code{bookdown} 
#' package.
#' 
#' \code{border_collapse} determines the settings for border styles in HTML
#' tables.  The most common values are \code{"collapse"} - which presses all
#' of the borders between cells on top of each other - and \code{"separate"} - 
#' which allows each cell to have its own, distinct border.  
#' 
#' \code{pixie_count} is used to manage table numbering in non-LaTeX tables.
#' See \code{\link{set_pixie_count}} for methods to manipulate the numbering.
#'
#' \code{pixie_discrete_pal } controls the colors for shading by discrete values.
#'     
#' \code{pixie_float} determines if tables in LaTeX output are placed in 
#' floating environments.
#' 
#' \code{pixie_gradient_pal} controls the colors giving the
#'    endpoints of the color scale on which to shade numeric values.
#' 
#' \code{pixie_hhline} determins if tables in LaTeX output use the 
#' \code{hhline} package for constructing table cells.
#' 
#' \code{pixie_html_linebreak} controls the number of line breaks placed 
#' after a table in HTML output.
#' 
#' \code{pixie_interactive} Allows control over whether HTML and markdown 
#'   tables are printed to the viewer or to the document.
#' 
#' \code{pixie_justify} controls the positioning of the complete table in the
#' document.  Note that \code{"none"} renders the table to the left side of 
#' the page, and subsequent elements will appear below the table.  When using
#' \code{"left"}, subsequent elements will appear to the right of the table.
#' When using \code{"right"}, subsequent elements will appear to the left of 
#' the table.
#' 
#' \code{pixie_longtable} determines if the \code{longtable} environment is 
#' used in LaTeX output.
#' 
#' \code{pixie_na_string} sets the default character set for replacing 
#' \code{NA} values in tables.
#' 
#' \code{pixie_tabcolsep} determines the spacing placed between cells in 
#' LaTeX output.  
#' 
#' \code{pixiedust_print_method} Sets the default printing method for tables. 
#' When \code{pixiedust} is being used with \code{knitr} and \code{rmarkdown},
#' the default is the value of \code{knitr::opts_knit$get("rmarkdown.pandoc.to")},
#' otherwise it is \code{"console"} 
#'
