Well, there's a document called "LaTeX in proper context", but that's from a different era and nowhere near exhaustive...

Betreff: Re: [NTG-context] A not so short introduction to ConTeXt Mark IV

I understand that and it is all well and good. I am wondering if there already is *another* text which presupposes basic knowledge of TeX and general knowledge of LaTeX, perhaps in a by-topic style.

I do not know if I have been able to do this, but although there are some references to LaTeX, I have tried to write a totally independent text, which does not require knowledge of LaTeX or TeX to be understood.

This is a great resource which I am at the moment enjoying to read but I can't help wondering if there is a text aimed at those who already know LaTeX and know the basics of TeX describing ConTeXt in terms of differences (and similarities) between the two, and in particular the gotchas.

Hello to all:

Two months ago I informed to the list that I had written an introduction
in Spanish to ConTeXt Mark IV. This interested several people, and in
order to increase their potential audience, a member of this list
(native English speaker) has proceeded to translate my text into English.

It is precisely the members of this list who need no introduction at
all, but it can sometimes be useful to help someone get started with the
fascinating typesetting system that is ConTeXt.

As for the English translation, I have made some small changes to the
Spanish version, so anyone who understands Spanish and prefers to read
it in its original language can download the new version:

Both versions are available at the following links

- Spanish: https://webs.um.es/jal/docs/introCTX_esp.pdf

- Engilish: https://webs.um.es/jal/docs/introCTX_eng.pdf

Soon I will send both texts, with their source files, to the
documentation section of the CTAN repository.
