Thank you, the problems have been solved and everything is now working 
on all three systems. I don't know why the figure-reference problem 
also disappeared after changing from \inmarge to \inmargin, but I will 
not try to find out ...

When looking at the threads in this user group and also sometimes at 
the answers to my questions, I realise that I should know something 
about the structure of the system behind ConTeXt. Therefore this 
general question: at the beginning of the context manual, 3 books on 
TeX are being recommended. But we are also assured that we don't need 
them for using ConTeXt (unless we want to program). Would the 
beginner's book help in understanding the structure of the whole 
system? Or is it all about how to write in TeX instead of ConTeXt, and 
therefore a waste of time (for me, at least)?
