Thanks. That did the trick. Now, How do I insert multi-page PDFs created
elsewhere in an appendix.

Colors are disabled in MkII, to enable them include

\setupcolors[state=start]

to your document.

\framed
   [..,
    background=color,
    backgroundcolor=red,
    foregroundcolor=blue,
    ...]
   {...}

use 'numberstyle' instead of 'numbercommand' for style related settings
and replace your \vskip settings with \blank

   before={\blank[force,1.0in]},
   after={\blank[0.5in]},
