It has taken me some time to conjecture that *mwe* would probably mean
*minimal working example* and somewhat more to try to concoct something
that could pass for it, but here it is, in the attached file

This is to report a problem I am presently experiencing with Context.
The symptom is that the contents of an hyphenation list, implemented as an
outstanding file, I use for typesetting a lating text are no longer taken
into account when performing the hyphenation operations.
This happens with
As well the original TeX manual as ConTeXt's one try to dissuade one of
enquiring deeper into the subject of hyphenation patterns. For several
reasons not to be explained at this moment this is however what I want to

As the following example shows, just trying to add a footnote to a
midaligned sentence is not that easy: either the footnote index is
(dis)placed to the right margin or the footnote body does not show at its
proper place (at the end of the page).
Is there a way to make both things fit?
I am glad to report that the problems that I experienced until recently
with the *lettrine* module have disappeared. At present it works like any
other regular module.
As the *lettrine* source file does not seem to have been modified, I
conclude that the reason of the improvement should be
Thanks for your contributions.
You are right in your remark about the path to images, Wolfgang. I was not

This is a disclaimer to my former message about this subject.
I continued considering the solution to the problem of using *fleurons* in
a document via the suggested *\leaders* command and it turned out to be a
dead end for the following reasons:
1) it acts wrongly if the page in which the
*Fleurons* are small decorative pieces that were often used in the past for
filling big blank spaces in books. They are seldom used nowdays. As besides
they will not appear more than a few times in any book (mainly at the end
of chapters), the easiest thing to do if one insists in using them (for
Many thanks, Wolfgang, for your quick and complete solution to my riddle.
As Hans has commented, it is really brilliant.
I must confess that I do not understand yet the substance of it, i.e. the
definition itself of *Fleuron*, but I will keep studying it and will end
for getting it, I hope.
I am making my first steps in ConTeXt. I am only interested in Mk-iv and
am using version 2012.09.06 23:03. I tried to explore the possibilities of
additional module *lettrine* following its documentation
and prepared the following example, which reproduces almost
