ok, I just installed the current ConTeXt minimal and your module works

The footnote mark is not superscript and followed by a dot.

Comment: \dots actually produces a space, not \ldots.

There I should probably dive in the doc cause I'd be surprised nothing
is set up for the following issue, but, in French, if we have a
quotation in a quotation, the second pair of quotation marks shoud
appear as `` and ''.

\quotation{Citation \quotation{exemple}}

If I do \quotation{Citation ``exemple''} the result is incorrect.

You mean: not for the moment?

The third item of this example is correct in French.

Thanks again,
