Wow! Interesting, thanks.

The following keywords are also still missing in xml:
nofit
fit
margin
columns
text

Just one more question. Some time ago, I have a feeling that

\setupitemize
[paragraph]

was indeed working, so that one could get

----------------
This is a list:
- first
- second
- third

And a new paragraph started after that.

Now I have seen the
\startitemize[joinedup,nowhite,after]
in sources which does that, but I still don't quite understand the
"paragraph" keyword.

To my understanding (as described in the manual), one should need both
"packed" and "joinedup" in order to achive what joinedup does now, and
I have some fain momeries that that has been the case. Now it seem to
me as if joinedup would be doing did packed was supposed to do. But
I'm confused about all those options anyway.

Thanks again,
Mojca
