[NTG-context] LaTeX reledmac: what about ConTeXt ?

Hi Pablo,

Thanks to have correct my mistake. It works !
If you take this sample and place the number 8 in \dorecurse{4} in place of 4, you'll see something which is better than our first attempts. Now, it's only the last paragraph of the first page, which is messed up. After a somehow puzzled or erratic Wille zu Macht in the location of this last paragraph, ConTeXt locates very fine the last ones and does what it has to do ! But it's better to say that my code is weak ...

Hi Jean-Pierre,

see the explanation below.

You start the columns outside the loop and after you stop the columns
for the first time, they aren’t started again with each loop.

Your code should read:

> \dorecurse{4}{
>     \startcolumns[example]
>     \Stephanus{1a} Ὁμώνυμα λέγεται ὧν ὄνομα
>     μόνον κοινόν, ὁ δὲ κατὰ τοὔνομα
>     [...]
>     \stopcolumns}

I hope it helps,
