[NTG-context] context.delayed as parameter of setuphead[before=...]

On the Lua side, you'll have to pass strings so your example works, as
tables like those in setuphead({somehead}, {somesettings}) are actual Lua
tables and follow Lua, not TeX, rules (see e.g. Lua reference in
https://www.lua.org/manual/5.4/ or, better, CLD manual in



--First example

for m = 1, 3 do

context.setuphead({'chapter'}, {before='hello'})

context.startchapter({title="I'm a chapter!"})

for i = 1, 3 do





--Second example

--We'll pass some strings to TeX

local nice = "ConTeXt is love, ConTeXt is life"

local somehead = 'chapter'

local sometext = 'vallejo-trilce-es'

context.setuphead({somehead}, {before=nice})






I hope examples help.
