comment What's the quickest way to write “2nd” “3rd” etc in LaTeX?
@marczellm: Since \translateinput is based on luatex, it is possible to implement it in LuaLaTeX. But I don't know how easy it will be to translate the ConTeXt code to LaTeX.

comment ConTeXt + XeTeX (TeXLive 2012) does not work for Indic scripts like Malayalam
Look at type-*.mkii files in the distribution for examples of typescripts. To get correct rendering of indic scripts, you need to set up appropriate font features(the mapping=... part in the Typescripts page on the wiki), but I do not know what these font mappings are. The easiest way to proceed is to look at an xetex example in plain tex; that should work out of the box with xetex as well. Otherwise, post to the context mailing list where someone familiar with using indic scripts with xetex might be able to answer.

Simplefonts module only works for MkIV. For xetex, you need to define typescripts using traditional methods.

comment What is the state of support for (Unicode) Indic scripts in Context?
Currently, ConTeXt MkIV (luatex backed) doesnot support Indic scripts; you need to use ConTeXt MkII (xetex backend) for using Indic scripts.

comment ConTeXt: Enumeration, Comments cause undefined control sequence startformula error
As a personal choice, I prefer to use \startguess ... \stopguess rather than \guess ... \par. The latter can sometimes fail with a weird error message if the \par (empty line in the end) in missing.

comment Multi-line (block) comments in LaTeX
@YiannisLazarides: Of course, this definition cannot be nested. With LuaTeX it is possible to have multiline comments without any catcode jugglery. See Block comments in TeX for an example.

\usepackage[tbtags]{amsmath} will put the tag of a split equation at the bottom (if equation numbers are to the right) or the top (if equation numbers are to the left).
