Okay, that's clear, and what is also clear is that I cannot achieve this 
with my current version of Mk IV (nearly a year old now). The entire 
work is complete but for this small item, so I might need to do some 
'fiddling' outside ConTeXt to achieve a result that the publisher wants 
in his hands tomorrow... Unless I can delay him. I will try!

Many thanks,
