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.
