yes, this one did the trick. thanks a lot. regarding the prefix  
handling/recognition, I don't
quite get it (_what_ is considered a prefix, e.g. is there a canonical  
prefix separator etc. or where do I define
the prefix?). I'll try to hunt for it on contextgarden. if you do have a  
pointer, though,
that'd be nice.

in any casse, many thanks for sorting this one out.
