Thanks for the reply, Hans.
Here is my situation:
Every part of my document has to have a security classification (U, C, or S,
the highest). The highest classification of a part on a page determines
what goes in the page header and footer. If a paragraph splits so part is
on the next page, its classification needs to be considered in the
header/footer determination for the next page.
So I need to know if:
1. There is a fragment of a previous marked section at the top of a page.
If so, what is its classification (this may be done with the counters
2. Determine the highest classification on the page.
3. Produce the heading/footer accordingly.
My idea (from secret.sty) is to define a marking command for each part which
will modify one of a set of four (or six depending on how (1) is
implemented) counters depending on the mark's value (classification).
The output command will determine the approriate header/footer from
inspecting the counters, then reset the counters for the next page.
ANother quesion, if ConTeXt can do this, should I install the whole package
or just the minimal one (I run teTeX under Fedora Linux).
