Hi Sciurus,

This Introduction page is very nice. Great Job! I would just replace the "first 
ConTeXt document" section with a link pointing to First_Document, section Create 
a ConTeXt file, because newcomers are likely to begin with that page anyway.
Maybe using the same example would make sense?

It would be also worth to index it in the Basics index.
These are technical stuff that may be discussed further on in the wiki
wiki at contextgarden.net

Best regards,

Damien Thiriet
