comment How to limit the width of \halign?
Any particular reason you are not using one of the built-in table macros in ConTeXt. The layout is relatively easy to get using Natural Tables.

It may be better to post this question on the context mailing list.

The code runs okay for me as well (latest context beta plus latest circuitikz downloaded from ctan).

comment circuitikz and ConTeXT
Looking at the code, the t-circuitikz module doesn't check argument options (because in ConTeXt, you cannot mix key-value and argument options (i.e, european, current=american)).

comment circuitikz and ConTeXT
@cfr, Last time I checked (a couple of months ago), TikZ still changes catcodes manually rather than using the ConTeXt catcode tables. I checked circtuitikz, and it is also changing catcodes manually. Nonetheless, most (all?) of the functionality works.

comment circuitikz and ConTeXT
The basic problem is that tikz assumes that ! has catcode other, while ConTeXt is assuming that ! has catcode letter. You can grep the TikZ/circuitTikZ code base for pgfutil@ifnextchar! and replace that with pgfutil@ifnextchar ! (note additional space)

comment Draft mode in ConTeXt
LaTeX doesn't show underful boxes either :-). I don't know TeX internals well enough to understand the link that you posted. So I don't know how to translate it to ConTeXt

comment Is it necessary to use nonstopmode in ConTeXt?
Could you explain what you want to do? It is not necessary to use either --nonstepmode or --once; you can compile a file by running context filename

comment Dealing with slightly overfull \hbox's
@The_Keeper: After a quick search, one reference that I can find is Sec 3.3 of this tugboat article. It may be a good idea to ask about this on the context mailing list

comment Dealing with slightly overfull \hbox's
It may be possible to automate the kerncharacters trick. I remember seeing a ConTeXt demo on Arabic typesetting where such optimizations were performed after TeX had done the linebreaking. I don't remember where I saw that example. You may try searching the mailing list archives or asking on the ConTeXt mailing list.

comment How do I determine current font style in ConTeXt?
Does \fontalternative give you the information you are looking for? Or do you want `\fontclass'.
