Many thanks for your help, Marco.

I would like to hyphenate ConTeXt as the standard English word (Con-TeXt).

Sorry for having to explain that ;-), but I’m writing an introduction to
ConTeXt in Spanish. I had already rewritten two sentences in less than
five pages to avoid the not-hyphenated ConTeXt word.

Is there no simpler way to do this?
