Hi all,

I'm using ConTeXt to typeset Chinese, and I am confused with indentation

\indentation, \indenting, \setupindentations, \setupindenting.

My first question is what are the differences between "indentation" and
"indenting" ?

2) In Chinese, most paragraphs start with an indentation of two
characters. How to make the width of the indentation to be exactly two
Chinese characters?

I can achieve this approximately by using \setupindenting[big,yes] and
