[NTG-context] space before/after colored framed text

Hi Thomas,

I am very sorry. As a beginner with ConTeXt, I surely make mistakes, 
even in the way to show which issues I am confronting to. Maybe I ought 
to give the whole code where some errors occured, but I thought that the 
code was too long to be mailed to this list. That's why I have mailed a 
piece of the code concerning a colored framed but not the whole stuff. 
Thinking the issue occured with this special frame (and not with any 
other kind of frame), I have given this particular code.

BTW, in order to make understandable what kind of issue occured by this 
particular frame, I didn't want to give a sample too huge (I place this 
colored frame at the end of each section of my book). Anyway, I try to 
understand how manage the place of THIS colored frame just after a text 
(with no rejection of the frame to the following page); and I will be 
very pleased to understand how to resize the text font inside the frame. 
At last, how to manage footnotes within this framed text (the footnote 
numbering appears, but the text doesn't appear inside nor outside the 
framed text).

Thank you very much for your help.


See below the whole sample code :




\setuplayout [backspace=40mm]

\setuppagenumbering[alternative=doublesided, location={header, inmargin}]




\definefallbackfamily[mainface][serif][Theano Didot][preset=range:greek, 
it={Old Standard Italic}, force=yes]

\definefallbackfamily [mainface] [rm] [ipaexmincho] 

\definefallbackfamily[mainface] [serif] [nafeesnastaleeq] [range=arabic]

\definefontfamily [mainface] [sans] [FreeSans] [rscale=0.7]

La plupart des termes et des expressions qui doivent attirer l'attention 
du lecteur sont soulignés ici par des {\em italiques}. On trouvera {\em 
dans la marge} du texte de brèves indications biographiques et 
bibliographiques, tandis que les explications plus développées sont 
renvoyées en {\em notes de bas de page}. On trouvera à la fin de cet 
ouvrage une bibliographie des textes cités\footnote{Seuls les références 
aux textes classiques sont données, à l'exception des textes spécialisés}.
