    This paper describes the "strucplot" framework for the visualization of multi-way contingency
    tables. Strucplot displays include hierarchical conditional plots such as mosaic,
    association, and sieve plots, and can be combined into more complex, specialized plots for
    visualizing conditional independence, GLMs, and the results of independence tests. The
    framework's modular design allows flexible customization of the plots' graphical appearance,
    including shading, labeling, spacing, and legend, by means of "graphical appearance
    control" functions. The framework is provided by the R package vcd.
