I do not use ConTeXt for letters and invoices. I guess I could, but
I see little point, since I do not really care about how they look
as long as can get my point (or required payment ;-)) across to the
reader. And writing letters is simply easier in a word processor.

And for web programming I use plain pdfTeX to create auto-generated
PDF because it is both faster in processing and easier to trim down
the distribution.

I dearly miss page templates a la framemaker. I am not sure if ID can
do that (we have CS2, but I never can find the time to give it a
thorough testing).

Cheers, Taco
