Well, but that will give me one file with papersize a5.
Can I instruct context to produce two files: one with --mode=a5, one with
the normal settings?
Or is a makefile better suited for this?

What is the best way to produce both versions with one command? A makefile?

I have posted a question regarding floats and columnsets some time ago. I

I have seen ConTeXt comes with an extension for VS Code. How do you use
that? I have tried the code in the readme, but this doesn't seem to work.

Is this a bug, or am I making a mistake somewhere?

Ok. Have tried it. It seems to work on line 2.
Where can I find documentation about these ctx files?

Is the publications manual still up to date? Is there more recent
information available? How would I start writing my own

With LaTeX we can use `\includeonly` for partial compilation. The good
thing is that we can still refer to labels from other files, have a
complete TOC, and correct page numbers.
In ConTeXt the project structure is supposed to be used for partial

I am setting up a workflow for a journal where we will be using JATS XML as
an input format. PDFs should be typeset via ConTeXt. Is roundtripping
possible with ConTeXt? I will perhaps need to write page numbers back to a
XML file (either to the input file or to a new file.).
