Dankeschön!

I updated the wiki page: http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Using_Graphics#Flow_text_around_a_picture

There are some issues:

- \starthanging doesn’t accept parameters (using \setuphanging for every second picture is evil)
- As you can see in wiki, the picture stands on the first line of the text. This is a MkII problem, it works with MkIV.
- If you try several paragraphs or \startlines, then only the first paragraph flows.

Greetlings, Hraban
