Thank you!

Now another one:

(a) I want to create a table using 'p' cells that does not use the full width of the paper
(b) it is a long table, crossing a page end
(c) the whole table should be centered

I tried the source below and obviously made a mistake somewhere.

Any suggestions?


Test source:


\input knuth


\midaligned { %%% <-- THIS DOES NOT WORK -- it does not center the entire table
\starttabulate [|p(.5\textwidth)|p(.2\textwidth)|]
Nu laat ik je iets zien in een tabel, die met tabulate gemaakt is. \NC Het is overigens maar een experiment, maar we zullen zien wat er gebeurt. {\bf And I want all this to be centered.} \NC \NR
\NC Als dit werkt, dan gaan we heel fanatiek hiermee verder. \NC Dan gaan we allerlei prachtige zaken in ConTeXt zetten, met XeTeX. \NC \NR
} % end of \dorecurse
} % end of \midaligned
