when using framed texts you run into problems with flushing, struts and the nature of boxes (vbox,vtop)

in such cases one can do several things 



\def\MyDisplayCorrection {\vskip-\lineheight}

\margintext{some text in margin}

    \placeformula  \startformula  a+b=c \stopformula


use a Correction macro that can be nilled (since some day we may have more control over math spacing and can fix the problem) 

Here is a nice alternative: 


\margintext {some text in margin}



\startsetups MyTrick





I'm sure that yuou can explain this on the wiki 

(There is this Best Of Ruby Quiz book, maybe we should make a Best Of Context Quiz one ... )
