I think that the first page makes my intentions clear. My audience is
XML authors (though I think others will find the illustratons useful).
I undertand that there are many ways of doing things in ConTeXt and I
don't mean that ConTeXt authors should follow the advice. I think XML
authors will want one clear way of doing things rather than confusing
alternatives.

Fixed. The page now reflects the correct changes.

Thanks for yoru feedback. I wish I had understood the width=middle
earlier. I had to completely re-do my graphics once when I couldn't get
cutspace to work, and then I had to change it again.
