Bigre ! Of course, I know that.

I was attempting to make some fun with this thread.

More seriously, \( expression \) was already an attempt to come up with
something "better". I am risking to state that $expression$ and
\math{expression} are two good solutions for ConTeXt and that
\m{expression} is, at best, just useless. Furthermore, any suggestion to
depreciate $expression$ is, in my opinion (and apparently in the
opinion of others), ludicrous.


P.S. I am a present writing a chapter on mathematics for a small
introduction on typesetting with ConTeXt, so this discussion is
highly relevant.
