I'm hoping Idris's book will shed light on this. It's the opposite, but I think we all understand the difficulties that a Latex user has in changing his point of view (for me it's the same when I jump in LaTeX) We cannot do anything more than write same examples that encourage you in find your solution (that perhaps you want to share with us or in the wiki then). The hard part is to find a "context-way" (I personally tend to write more TeX-plain than context), so looking into the source is always the best choice.
Anyway I want to say that most of us are sometimes in someway annoyed by your strong sentences and this doesn't help so much in finding a solution. -- luigi ___________________________________________________________________________________ If your question is of interest to others as well, please add an entry to the Wiki! maillist : firstname.lastname@example.org / http://www.ntg.nl/mailman/listinfo/ntg-context webpage : http://www.pragma-ade.nl / http://tex.aanhet.net archive : http://foundry.supelec.fr/projects/contextrev/ wiki : http://contextgarden.net ___________________________________________________________________________________
