comment ConTeXt vs LaTeX compilation time
Comparing “a document that compiles perfectly with either LaTeX or ConTeXt” doesn’t make much sense IMO. It’d be much more interesting to compare two different versions of a document, each of which is truly idiomatic in one of the formats. So you’d use Tikz and Biber/Biblatex on the Latex side, but Metafun and the new bibliography system with Context. Btw. even then the comparison wouldn’t be fair at all because you’d have to limit the Context version of the document to the subset of functionality that Latex is capable of, which is quite a restriction.

comment Error PracTeX Jurnal Modules at ConTeXt
For the mkii format, run texexec instead of context. If you want to modify the practex style, just modify the file that you are pointed to: error on line 323 in file C:/context/tex/texmf-context/tex/context/base/s-ptj-01.tex: ! Undefined control sequence -- That should be the location.

comment Detecting the local style in a text with ConTeXt
@Aditya Actually the heuristic is even looser, even allowing for something as ridiculous as %foobarmacros=mkvi.

comment Detecting the local style in a text with ConTeXt
@Manuel That’s MkVI syntax. Context has a preprocessor (see luat-mac.lua that is applied if a file begins with the %macros=mkvi directive or its name has the extension .mkvi. The syntax is used extensively all over the Context source. There is not really anything to document since it works as you’d expect it to intuitively: named arguments are placeholders for TeX’s numbered ones.

comment Is there a limit to the size of a tex-file?
In some editors (e.g. Vim) syntax highlighting can be very resource intensive, especially with larger files. Have you tried switching it off? There is probably a configuration setting for the number of lines scanned (Vim: :help minlines); decreasing it should reduce the load too.

comment Error when using luaotfload-tool
Possibly caused by an interfering older version of Luatex. What does luatex --version say? If it’s older than 0.75 then you should update it. Or fix your $PATH.

comment New to ConTeXt, looking for better manual than PRAGMA
The main documentation is on the wiki. If you have trouble with manuals at the Pragma site you are invited to post suggestions for improvement on the mailing list.

comment lualatex: Need help with using different fonts
Neither of the Bravura fonts appears to provide glyphs for ASCII codepoints, that’s why you can’t see any of the basic Latin letters. Also see here for a way to suppress ligatures with Fontspec.

comment Font found with XeLaTeX not found with LuaLaTeX on Linux
This question appears to be off-topic because it is a bug report. The issue was fixed and an update should reach CTAN in the next couple days.

comment How to differentiate glyphs by script (semi-)automatically?
Interesting! Why do you run texlua separately? If you are concerned about reproducibility, you could just store the seed in the document or the .aux file.

@cfr: Installing the Context distribution alongside Texlive is a common setup and usually works flawlessly.

comment Font found with XeLaTeX not found with LuaLaTeX on Linux
@darthbith I’ve tested your Latex code (on a Linux machine but that shouldn’t matter) and it works ok: If Cambria is found by luaotfload-tool --find, then Luaotfload will locate it correctly during a TeX run. Fwiw here’s a minimal test file for Plain: gist.github.com/phi-gamma/a112d0487cabb1d0077e -- if that one fails on your setup, then there might be some old luaotfload-names.lua file at a different location interfering. If you’re certain the problem persists, please open an item on the official tracker.

comment Font found with XeLaTeX not found with LuaLaTeX on Linux
@DavidCarlisle Even if it was legally possible to restrict the use of a font the way you describe, you don’t actually have to “install” (whatever that means) the font “on Linux”. Just mount a Windows partition and then put a symlink to the file in ~/.fonts and it should be usable directly.

comment Why does using small caps break endash ligatures in lualatex?
@Caleb Since there’s a major subsystem rewrite underway I keep the changes in my repo until I’m confident they don’t break everything when merged into master. I haven’t checked whether the fix applies to older versions.

Hans fixed it. The new code will be part of the next version of Luaotfload.
