i sure don't have time to dig into the package to feel comfortable enough to 
make changes.

what are the options? evaluate which functionalitiy RKWard uses exactly, and 
try to replace R2HTML with maintained alternatives (if there is any)? two 
things come to my mind:

 print(xtable(), format="HTML")

and extending XiMpLe to make generating HTML easy enough to become independent 
from other packages? here's some stuff i've been toying around for some other 

# title: character string
# head: contents of the header without title, list of XiMpLe nodes
# body: contents of the body, list of XiMpLe nodes
HTML.page <- function(title="", head=NULL, body=NULL){
    head <- list(XMLNode("title", title), unlist(head))
  } else {
    head <- list(XMLNode("title", title))
    body <- XMLNode("body", body)
  } else {
    body <- XMLNode("body", "")
  full.header <- XMLNode("head", children=head)
  page <- XMLTree(XMLNode("html", .children=list(full.header, body)),
  xml=list(version="1.0", encoding="UTF-8"),
  dtd=list(doctype="html", decl="PUBLIC",
    id="-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN",

div <- function(..., attrs=NULL){
  return(XMLNode("div", ..., attrs=attrs))

p <- function(..., attrs=NULL){
  return(XMLNode("p", ..., attrs=attrs))

head <- NULL #list(
#  XMLNode("script", "foo")
body <- div(p("foo"))

HTML.page("bar", head=head, body=body)

we could build on the R2HTML package code.
