I must admit I was not aware of that.

AsciiDoc can convert to e.g. DocBook(5), but I wonder if/how ConTeXt
could handle it?

I’ve found something:
but this involves fiddling with XSL stylesheets, while Pandoc’s
covnersion from DocBook to ConTexT eliminates need for them.

Another option would be to jsut bite the bullet and learn ConTeXt
properly to be use for *all* serious writings which makes sense if I
consider that I *might* need to produce one presentation every 2 weeks
which is more the one hundred per year. :-O

In that case it would be nice to have bette/more support in my (Emacs)
editor, but that’s another topic for another thread after I did discover
related thread in AUCTeX list today. ;)


The embodied soul may be restricted from sense enjoyment,
though the taste for sense objects remains. But, ceasing
such engagements by experiencing a higher taste,
he is fixed in consciousness.
