Thanks, I will try the suggestions.

As for Taco's remark:

Yes, I from the old programming school (back to the sixties) and I  
like simple efficient and thus a bit minimalistic, code. Not because  
of the clock cycles (anymore) but because I believe the simplest code  
most often is the one with the least problems.
Regarding plain format: no I like what is possible in Context and am  
abhorred by the idea to have to find out all that by myself; but so  
now and then I am self-willed enough to do things "my way".
