Hello Wolfgang,

It would be nice, to specify a background-color for some text, but without
that the background of one line touches the background of the line below.

Illustration of what I'm looking for:

\setupinterlinespace[line=1cm] % just to make the example more obvious
\definetextbackground[myBG][background=color, backgroundcolor=green,
  % backgroundheight=1ex, % does not work
  % height=1ex,           % does not work
bla bla \startmyBG \dorecurse{30}{bla }\stopmyBG bla bla

Cheers, Peter
