Here is my small sample ConTeXt sample:  I want to be able to control the blank 
gap between the end of an item and the next item.  It has to be fine tuned at 
times.  Any advice would be appreciated.


NOTE: Two cases with inbetween attempting use use two variations of the \blank  
command which
      causes 'context' run to hang.  The comment escape on them has to be 
removed to test them.


The rightmost column contains result comments.

Note that inbetween=\blank[.5mm]  and \blank[small] cause context to hang .
But, underbar'd command with a text string works as advertised.

Regards
     dh
