Hello everybody.
I managed to set ConTeXt to properly split a rotated table.
Now I have a big problem with the correct placement of page number in 
footer. If I set different layout and numbering in footer is OK then the 
table is badly divided. Is there some choices for layout settings so 
that the page numbering to work correctly in footer while the table 
rotated to properly divided? I tried many setups with diferent 
parameters of layouts but without succes.

I'm beginning to feel that perhaps will not even possible do that.
Must I  turn off page numbering in footers, and manually put the data at 
the corresponding position on the page by using layers? Or exist any way 
to do it using \setuplayout?

Thanx Jaroslav Hajtmar

Here is my example:

% http://source.contextgarden.net/page-lay.mkiv

\definelayout[portrait][width=fit, topspace=5mm, header=1cm, 
footer=1.5cm, height=fit]
\definelayout[rotatedportrait][location=middle,width=fit, height=fit, 


\setupfootertexts[ŠVP Gymnázia Zábřeh][section][ŠVP Gymnázia 
\setuppagenumbering[state=start,location=footer, left=---\ , right=\ ---]



   \input tufte


   \placetable[90,split][tab:example]{Example of a rotated table}
   \dorecurse{65}{\bTR\dorecurse{7}{\bTD x\eTD}\eTR}
