I appreciate the response.

However, you are light years ahead of me in understanding ConTeXt, so I 
don't quite know what to do with the info you have given me! I have 
difficulty understanding your comment 'This is not interfaced via 
setuphead *or* setuplangauge *or* because the converter is not 
configured that way'. The 'or' throws me out, I'm afraid. Were you going 
to suggest somewhere else?

I assumed that I would need to add \def\verbosenumberconnector{--} as a 
definition in the preamble (and have), but where do I call it in? Not in 
\setuphead[chapter] that is for sure, but I need to call on it 
somewhere. Where?
