I'm interested for the topic, but it would be nice, imho, if the Part-1
would contain some kind of Abstract along with the TOC for the whole
series according to your plan?

Otoh, I still wonder which method to use for typesetting Markdown with
ConTeXt, iow. whether to use Mardkown module and/or filter or to go with
pandoc-xhtml (http://www.from-pandoc-to-context.tk/) method...

However, one thing is certain: (Pandoc's) Markdown seems easy and
good-enough for most of documents I plan to write, while ConTeXt is
without comparison when it comes to the quality of final output.

the control of the self.
