Thanks for this response.
Actually, we were able to get it to work as follows.

First, we used
to get section to inherit some settings from chapter.
This included the "page=yes" setting you mentioned (which we don't want,
because we handle page breaks with some separate special logic); but it
also apparently includes some unknown magic that enables page numbers in

Then we add "page=no" to the \setuphead[section] command, to override
the inherited "page=yes".
Apparently, it works:





\section{My Own Section}

\dorecurse{15}{ \input knuth \par }


I would love to know what the default properties of the \chapter head
are, so we could know what we're inheriting, or how to set up section to
do what we want without inheriting unknown properties from chapter.

Thanks again,
