comment Is it possible to type easily polytonic greek in XeTeX?
@egreg Is it possible to have a more "portable" and "configurable" solution? I tried α| with no result. (So I have again to change all the asciitogreek.map for my needs..) I would like something like \usepackage{newunicodechar} (the commands do not work always for any possible combination of two or more characters) or using active characters as in tex.stackexchange.com/questions/169093/…?

@egreg Yes of course! What an excellent solution. The only problem I have: I can not understand your instructions: teckit_compile asciitogreek.map How I will convert asciitogreek.map and where to put the conversion? I have Windows 7 +TeXLive Thanks!

comment Is it possible to connect a database to LaTeX to produce data-driven documents?
I made a simple xml database. (See here [link] tex.stackexchange.com/questions/45114/…). Is it possible to write a simple ConTeXt(LuaLaTex) or LuaLaTeX code for this xml to illustrate your answer?

comment Babel in ConTeXt(LuaTeX)
That's right @Aditya. I haven't found a way to hyphenate Greek (or other no Latin languages) using ConTeXt! Am I wrong? I could see only \language[] command in ConTeXt but only for a small number of languages(nl, fr, en, de). Also I guess that one could write very clear LuaLaTeX commands (maybe using a new .sty?) that could imitate many ConTeXt commands(for example the ConTeXt command \useexternalfigure e.t.c) or vice versa . So the ConTeXt and LuaLaTeX are equivalent in complexity.( But this of course just my opinion.I could be wrong!) Disclaimer: I am not an expert in LuaLaTeX orConTeXt.

David, I am sorry! My English are not good! Actually my problem is to secure(save) hyphenation!

comment Put a bracket over a text (not in math mode)
I found the ulem package. This is near what I am thinking! But there is no hyphenation of the text if someone include \markoverwith commands in his text. Also I don't know how to make some commands similar to \overlace or \widetidle or \widehat(in MATH MODE!!) that respect the hyphenation rules. Please help!

comment Split a scanned photo across multiple pages (with a predifined splitting point)
I 'll try to post one. But fist let me make an example for clarify myself. I write some comments about history then I insert some A4 scanned page from an old book, then I make some new comments and then again I insert a new A4 scanned page and put some new comments...e.t.c. So I need a package and/or a command mixing text and scanned pages in a natural way (i.e without loss of information when there is a need to split some scanned pages)

comment Could I insert the elements of a mdb or csv base in Latex?
I think \docsvist is a good idea. One more question: Let us suppose we have the \docsvlist{item1, item2, {item3a, item3b,item3c, item3d}, item4} and someone wants to take only the item3b and item3d for use with \do command(see Daniels Shub' answer). How this could be achieved??
