Hi again,

sorry for bothering you so persistently, but I really did try to hard to
find a solution -- and failed:
In the attempt to customise my section headings by means of

I followed the instructions at
. For the purposes of testing, I've installed a current minimals
distribution. As it turns out, neither MkII nor MkIV processes the
attached example as expected:
MkII The table of contents is incomplete, even though the wiki says it
     shouldn't be;
MkIV \currentheadnumber seems to be 0 all the time.

There is a possibility, of course, that something is wrong with my setup
of ConTeXt. But I just did another

    Sect \currentheadnumber}
\chapter{First chapter}
\section{First section}
Some text.

\chapter{Second chapter}
Introductory text.

\section{First section}
More text.

\section{Second section}
The end.
