Surprisingly for me, in the example you gave, before=\noindentation resulted
in no indentation for the first paragraph but the two others were indented.
With before=\noindenting all three paragrapghs were unindented. I really
couldn’t have guessed this.
With some slight changes your example did almost exactly what I had in mind.
(Almost, since in a text like this I would prefer some space between the
paragraphs and I understand that it cannot be adjusted locally.)
Just for the sake of completeness I add it here:
\input knuth \par
I have two related questions for the list:
a. Would it be useful to add this information to the ConTeXt wiki page on
b. Is there a complete and up to date list of commands for ConTeXt, and what
they are supposed to do, to be found somewhere? (I find things like the
existence of \noindent, \noindenting and \noindentation, all apparently
giving slightly different results, nice for the variety it offers but, for a
beginner, quite confusing as well.)
