His documents are really beautifully typeset. In the book, "Theorems, Maps, and Trees" all paragraphs are typeset as complete rectangles! See a sample here: https://www.principiae.be/book/pdfs/TM&Th-samplepages.pdf > The whole idea of his fascinating approach is that the page is quantized in 2 > dimensions and that all positioning, even graphical elements stick to that > grid. ConTeXt already implements grid snapping in the vertical dimension. For "grid snapping" in the horizontal direction, you need to ensure that all \hskip's are multiple of the grid size. > I'm specifically interested in using this approach for report generation.

The keys `lines=..., columns=...` work almost like a grid. See the details manual for examples of grid snapping and layers.
