Thanks Wolfgang, it does work now!

I didn't now that the counter would be called 'userpage'.  It thought
I had to set the page-counter (\setconter[page][1]), as I was using


and not


It seems as if both commands have the same effect. Are these synonyms?

Is there a way for an end-user (like me) to infer from a command as
\setuppagenumber that the corresponding counter is called "userpage"?
I am just asking so I may get an understanding of how ConTeXt works,
and I don't have to bother the list with so many questions.

Thanks in advance.
