This paper describes a natural interaction between Stata and markup languages. Stata’s programming and analysis features, together with the flexibility in output formatting of the markup languages, allow generation and/or update of whole documents (e.g., reports, presentations on screen or web). We give examples for both LATEX and HTML. Copyright 2006 by StataCorp LP.
