comment ConTeXt: Page numbering in words for spanish
It will be best to send the email to the context mailing list asking to extend thr words conversion to Spanish.

comment ConTeXt: Page numbering in words for spanish
Are you using MkIV? In that case, you can simply adapt the verbose.english function from core-con.lua to Spanish (The function is written in Lua, so it should be easy to modify it). If you send the resultant code to the context mailing list, then it will be added to the core as well.

comment ConTeXt keeps trying to create “missing” font files
Sorry, the type-gentium file is part of the gentium module, not the typescripts module. You can find the file at: tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/fonts/gentium/tex/context/third/gentium

comment Convert a novel typed in Word (just dialogue text,no math) to LaTeX
I'd second the recommendation of using pandoc in the loop. In particular, if the novel is just text (no figures or tables; no fancy formatting), then markdown is an excellent input format as well. If you want to use word for other reasons (compare diff, spell check, etc), you can simply use word as a markdown editor (i.e., use markdown formatting in word file), and in the end simply export the whole thing as text.

comment Using Vim Latex-live-preview with minted package
You can change the value of 'tmp_dir' in vim-latex-live-preview to a fixed directory, and then look at the log file there.

Which version of context are you using (output of context --version)? I tested with the input in your example, and do not get any line break between the arabic text and close parenthesis. You do not need a \hbox.

comment Using Vim Latex-live-preview with minted package
Does minted work if you try the same command as in vim-latex-live-preview: pdflatex -shell-escape -interaction=no -output-dir=/tmp filename? Do you get any error message in the log file (which should be in a random directory created by mktempdir() in the plugin ).

comment Fatal format file error; stymied. fmtutil: infinite recursion
@LarsH: Sorry, I was typing on my phone, and did not notice the stupid autocorrect. I meant, run "xetex backend". Regarding "context --xetex" vs "texexec --xetex"; both "context" and "texexec" are wrapper script that call the underlying engine with appropriate arguments; "context" is written in lua so does not require ruby, while "texexec" is written in ruby. Regarding sudo vs not, in general it is a good idea try the command without sudo; depending on the config, this might create the format files in TEXMFHOME. If you get a "permissions denied" error, then try with sudo.

Another option is to run texexec --xetex --make to create the formats.

Another option is to install the context standalone distribution (see contrxt for wiki for details). It may be installed in parallel to TL, and you can run extend backend using context --xetex filename.

comment Flushleft and flushright in the same line (ConTeXt)
Are you trying to write attribution for quotes? Simply using \wordright{#2} should be sufficient.

comment Good tools for LaTeX maintenance tasks?
In the past, I had used gema to translate a 700 page book written in plain TeX to LaTeX (I needed some hand-tuning for figures and tables). Gema is more versatile than regular expressions, has a windows port, and includes an example of tranlating LaTeX to HTML

comment Flushleft and flushright in the same line (ConTeXt)
What if #1 or #2 is larger than a line? What if #1 + #2 is larger than a line. If you ignore these cases then \hbox to \textwidth{#1 \hfill #2} should work.
