Not really. My requirements are rather dull and limited. I was attracted to ConTeXt for its simplicity in changing paper formats, in changing the formats of headings (section, subsection etc.), the ease with which index entries can be formatted, and above all for its beautiful table possibilities. The book I am working on is full of tables in various formats and lengths.

That (and the footnotes :-) ) covers just about all my typesetting needs. I had already prepared numerous smaller documents as practice before I started to process the book with ConTeXt, was delighted with the results, and so I thought that I could manage the book too (before the end of this month…).
