Hello ConTeXist. 0. Do you think that this is only a problem for beginners of ConText or it is a general problem of ConTeXt? 1. How many of ConTeXt users use this tool for typesetting of non-elementary mathematics? 2. Are you satisfied with the results, which produces ConTeXt (thinking

Hi Mikael, as in my first answer use: f''_xx or f''_{xx} if you need both xs' I have tried it at it looks very similar to your LaTeX example. Start another thread about the single prime as bug. Since this one is marked as OT and others more more knowledgeable might not be reading this.

It maybe helpful for beginners if there were sample documents for mathematical typesetting (for the current version of context) that could be used as a start for their own projects. Maybe list members can contribute some for addition to the documentation wiki.
