Do you want text to automatically reflow from one column to the next?

comment How to set maxheight of a combination in ConTeXt?
The reason for height=0.8\textheight messing things up was because one cannot mix options (like 1*4) with assignments (like height=0.8\textheight) in ConTeXt. Using \startcombination[nx=1, ny=4, height=0.8\textheight] should work.

comment Get or change ConTeXt path for components/projects/environment
While compiling from products, another option is to run context --path=.. X. (Depending on your setup, changing the command line call may be preferable to editing a file).

comment Get or change ConTeXt path for components/projects/environment
Another option is to compile the files from the garden directory using context products/X. Note that this will create the auxiliary files in the garden directory.

@Nasser or look at the example on context wiki (linked in the question). Any misspelled word is colored red.

comment ConTeXt: How to align a delimitedtext?
\startmiddleanligned...\stopmiddlealigned is equivalent to \midaligned{...}, so it typesets the content inside a \hbox, that does not split lines.

comment ConTeXt: How to align a delimitedtext?
delimitedtext does not provide the align key. (Even if it did, you need a comma after align=middle to get it to work). If you need a specific feature of delimitedtext, please send a feature request to the context mailing list to add align key to delimitedtext? If you just need middle alignment, then the following works: \definestartstop[blockquote][before={\blank[medium]\startmiddlealigned},after={‌​\stopmiddlealigned\blank[medium]}].

comment ConTeXt vs LaTeX compilation time
To do a realistic timing comparison, you need a relatively big document (50-100 pages), so that startup time etc. don't skew the results. Also keep in mind that by default Context uses LuaTeX and does multiple runs to get cross references right. To get the best speed from context use luatexjit (by compiling the document using contextjit filename)

That should be % macros=mkvi (note the space after %).

And report this to the context mailing list, so that the module can be corrected upstream.

@Brent.Longborough: I completely agree. One has to be careful with pushing a rebased directory to a remote mirror.

In this notation, you can also get rid of the horizontal and vertical lines.

comment Splitting tables longer than a certain size in ConTeXt
I am not aware of an automatic way of doing this check. You may be better off asking on the mailing list. One option, that I occasionally use with Lua, is to count the number of rows upfront, and add split=yes only if there are more than n rows.

But I don't know anything about texmaker. That is why I did not post an answer. The command should correspond to context --batch %

comment Context with TexMaker
Use context (ConTeXt MkIV, luatex engine) instead of texexec (ConTeXtMkII, pdftex engine)

comment ConTeXt with LuaTeX to compile mathml
You have not set an math font! Use \setmathfont[...] to set the math font. By the way, in recent versions of context, the functionality of the simpleslides module is now part of te core, but with a slightly different syntax

comment ConTeXt parsing xml file
(Untested) my guess is that you'll have to use &LATEX, etc.
