Indeed, and I think that in all I have written (I don't know plain TeX so
well) above one can insert "plain TeX" instead of LaTeX.

I can add that I think that the horizontal space between the integral sign
and the function is too large. Compare with plain TeX/LaTeX. Maybe that
comes from having smaller size of the limits?

I hope that you dont get me wrong. I would like to use ConTeXt more than I
do today. But at the moment it just don't give the expected output when it
comes to math. Are there any other mathematicians on this list that can
raise their voices and tell what they think?

Best regards, Mikael
