[NTG-context] linenotes/footnotes

I discovered conTeXt+metapost because I was not satisfied with the limited capabilties of pgf for my graph music project. I have to say that I was forcing pgf beyond its scope, but in any case it is not intended as a complex, global plotting system, as far as I understand. Best -a- On 22

[NTG-context] First space shown in a referenced itemize head

2006-04-22 Thread nico
Hello, When a reference is set to \head, a space after the square brackets appears in the output. Shouldn't it be ignored? Applying a reference to \item does not show the problem. Besides, what is the best way to put item or head text in square brackets? Using \relax works but I'm not sure

It is just my 2c, but I really dislike the Tioga approach. It feels like typesetting a book in TeX by writing a single-shot pascal program. ;-) Specifically, I find code like this (Tioga): move_to_point(x0, y0) append_curve_to_path(x1, y1, x2, y2, x3, y3) far uglier than this
