Thank you. This works for me. 

Just two questions:

1. The "section" part of the words sectionstarter and sectionstopper above is just
a general term for any heading type and does not correspond to the heading type.
Is this correct? (That is, there are no chapterstarter=, subsectionstarter= etc. options).

2. The command you commented, \setupreferencestructureprefix, what does it supposed to do? It did not do anything for me, eg:

Based on the above I used this code tho achieve the required look:







I found that \setupheads[sectionstopper=.] (plural) has the same effect.
I guess \setupheads is the general setup for all types of headings, and
\setupheads[<heading-type>][options] for the given <heading-type>.
But if in the latter command I don't specify <heading-type> it will apply
to all heading-types. Is this correct? 

By experimenting further I also found that:

\setuphead[section][] will apply to section, subsection and subsubsection but
not to chapter. 

\setuphead[chapter][] will apply to chapter only, and not to any ...section.

Thank you,
