# [NTG-context] Unwanted whitespace for tables and enumerations after \inmargin headings

(This appears to be the same issue which was raised by Alexandros
Frantzis in October 2008; see the thread at
http://www.mail-archive.com/ntg-context%40ntg.nl/msg32125.html. No
resolution was proposed at that time, and the problem still exists.)

Extra whitespace occurs before itemizations and tabulations (and quite
possibly other structures) which appear immediately following an
in-margin heading. The following example illustrates this.

\setuplayout [backspace=7cm,leftmargin=6cm]

[alternative=normal,command=,distance=1em]

[alternative=normal,command=,distance=1em]

alternative=text,

\startbuffer[Item]
\startitemize
\item Item
\item Idem
\stopitemize
\stopbuffer
\startbuffer[Table]
\starttabulate[|l|l|]
\FL\NC Entry \NC one \NC\NR
\NC Entry \NC two \NC\NR\LL
\stoptabulate
\stopbuffer

\starttext

\chapter{Itemize}

\section{No extra whitespace}
With text here there is no extra whitespace before the itemization.
\getbuffer[Item]

\subsection{No extra whitespace}
With text here there is no extra whitespace before the itemization.
\getbuffer[Item]

\chapter{Tabulate}

\section{No extra whitespace}
With text here there is no extra whitespace before the table.
\getbuffer[Table]

\subsection{No extra whitespace}
With text here there is no extra whitespace before the table.
\getbuffer[Table]

\section{Extra whitespace}
\getbuffer[Table]
With no text before the table there is extra space after the heading.

\subsection{No extra whitespace}
\getbuffer[Table]
With no text before the table there is extra space after the heading.

\stoptext

Is this unresolvable? Like Alexandros, I have tried many of the options
that looked appropriate, but nothing seems to work.
