Scott,

Thanks for your suggestions, both of which work, without resulting in the
error message we were getting.
This is simpler than adding the LaTeX code lines for every table, so we
will use it.

We will suggest the change needed to the kableExtra author Hao Zhu, who has
previously been
very helpful.

Best,
Doug
