Yes, I have also seen impressive results form ConTeXt, that is why I 
have added it as a format to be created by default to my teTeX 
distribution. However, I haven't found a good tutorial for its use, for 
example, how do you process that piece you type above? It is not like 
other tex stuff, where you load a format, say

pdfetex &cont-uk foo.tex

because that just writes a dvi file.
