Hi Gerben,

Due to a mistaken handling you roriginal mail I lost it :-(

In that mail in the last part, I believe it was an example \component I 
saw, that you said \starttext ... \stoptext. You do not need this pair, 
The handling of starting and stopping is done by the \startproject ... 
\stopproject commands.

In the product section I saw that you did not use the \startbodymatter 
... \stopobodymatter. I think this is important, because in the 
frontmatter sectionheading handling is different, as is in the backmatter.

here you go with an example I prepared:

\startproject HBBbrev

\environment layout

\product voorpag        %Titlepage for the book
\product beginmat       %Frontmatter: Woord vooraf, Koppermaandag,
\environment lo-3

\product gekart      %Gekartonneerd in drie varianten
\product bdz-rech    %Bandzetter rechte rug
\product technik     %Werkwijzen en technieken
\product appendix    %Appendices:


\product backmat     %Backmatter: Impressum


In my case many of the product-files contain a number of \components.

I do hope, that this helps.

Kind regards Willi
