[OS X TeX] metapost using pdflatex

A simple search with Google for ConTeXt and TeX would lead to many 
valuable links, including one to a nice site by Berend de Boer 
introducing ConTeXt to LaTeX users


Many links within are useful, as well as direct links to the makers of 
ConTeXt, Pragma


That site will provide a lot of documentation, examples, and a very 
valuable mailing-list in which people are very helpful. Try it...

Anyway, to use the sample I provided is to replace that Escher jpeg name 
with some other jpeg you have. Save that TeX file, and run the ConTeXt 
command that TeXShop provides. Can't get any easier that with Koch et 
al.'s excellent TeXShop package. Of course, you have to be using 
Gerben's well-made teTeX package.

Good luck. And next time, try searching a little. You might find 
something relevant. :)
