comment Want to make the colorful table in LaTeX
@LaTeXKhan, as I said, this is a context solution, not a latex one. This is the full code.

comment Why are LaTeX macros so inconsistent?
I would go as far as to say that if you care about purity that much to write a document in the first style, then go all the way and use XML as an input format. That has an additional advantage that you can easily verify that the input conforms to a schema

comment context tex poster template
The way I see it, creating a poster is as simple as setting the paper size and font size, and then typesetting the content in columns. Another option is to use layers for absolute positioning of content. Is there any particular feature of the LaTeX packages that you cannot translate to ConTeXt?

comment Vertically aligned table in plainTeX / LaTeX / Context etc
@wipet: Yes, ConTeXt uses a too pass mechanism. The first pass to determine the maximum width of each cell, and the second pass to do the actual typesetting. Similar approach is also taken by LaTeX when typesetting aligned equations (align, falign, etc.)
