Sorry, Hans, I’m afraid that I don’t get it.

I have been searching the wiki and mailing list, the code (using grep)
after I got your reply. The solution may be there, but I haven’t been
able to find it.

\xmlcontext{#1}{.}

compiles in ConTeXt the contents of (in this case):

<pre class="tex"><code>\ConTeXt\ rocks!</code></pre>

It would be the same as compiling in pure ConTeXt:

\starttext
\ConTeXt\ rocks!
\stoptext

And what I need (and haven’t been able to explain) is in pure ConTeXt:

\startTEX
\ConTeXt\ rocks!
\stopTEX

If this can be achieved with \xmlcontext{#1}{#2}, I cannot find which
values #2 take (I have no idea of what is expected there).
