More on tables and such: Looking through "The Elements of Typographic Style," the author recommends tables be aligned on the decimal or flush right. If there is no decimal in an entry using the decimal alignment, in effect such a number is aligned as if it had a decimal. What you get is something like: 10 10.2 10.34 I cannot seem to do this in ConTeXt. It seem either all figures must have a decimal, or must not. Bruce

i must admit that i still have to read it (btw, it's a nice but quite narrow book that, i fear that i have to crack the binding )

10\\ should do the trick, can you check this?

I have tried: \starttabulate[mc] \NC \digits{100.000,00} \NC\NR \NC \digits{~10.000,00} \NC\NR \NC \digits{~~1.100,00} \NC\NR \NC \digits{~~~~10,~~} \NC\NR \stoptabulate Is it possible to put the \digits into the preamble of the tabular? Say \starttbaulte[?{\digits{#1}}] \NC 100.000,00 \NC\NR \NC ~10.000,00 \NC\NR \NC ~~1.100,00 \NC\NR \NC ~~~~10,~~ \NC\NR \stoptabulate Patrick
