  Description     : A powerful TeX format

ConTeXt is a typographical engine written in the typographical computer 
language TeX. ConTeXt provides you with a convenient way to encode documents 
in a structured way and to typeset these documents in various ways on paper, 
computer screen or web site.

Use ConTeXt to create simple documents and complex layouts. From a single 
source produce traditional paper documents as well as highly interactive 
electronic documents. Combine text and graphics and other information in
your document in different ways. Move around, use and reuse information 
and typeset in one or more natural languages.

This package also contains MetaFun. MetaFun (a superset of well known 
MetaPost) is a powerful system for vector graphics that is fully integrated
into ConTeXt thereby reaching its full potential for the first time, but
also usable as a stand alone product. 

MetaFun is not for interactive drawing applications and not for free hand 
drawings. Its strength lies in the ability to enhance the document layout
with highly accurate graphics elements.
