Here is my example:

It would be happening whether humans had ever evolved or not.


Below, we have two separate columns; but up here, for the nonce, we
have but the one.

\startcolumns[n=2]  % Two columns, please
     Text, text, text \dots
     all in the first column
     Words, words, words \dots
    all in the second column.
     And look ye here! Even more words!
Why can‘t I see the cow?

Without setting the location context doesn't check the system
directories for the sample images.

Furthermore, you're typesetting before \starttext. That's why your
font is monospaced.

And I try to separate content from style. That's why I move all
style information before \starttext and after \starttext comes only
content and markup (if possible). Nothing wrong with mixing it, but
it's easier to read and easier to change the layout after the fact.
I'd write your example as follows.



   [yes, small]


    indenting={yes, small},
    background=color, backgroundcolor=darkblue,
    foreground=color, foregroundcolor=white,



You don’t need \noindentation when you add “next” to the indenting options.
