comment Metapost error related with ConTeXt
Please don't post the same question simultaneously at the context mailing list and on this site. Pick one, and if you don't get a response within a reasonable time, only then post on the other.

comment Typesetting scenes in a novel
Untested: Does adding a comma after \insidesection={\PlaceLocation} fix the spacing issue? Sorry, that was a typo in my code as well.

@J.A.Rubio: I am not sure what is the correct protocol on the site. Add additional info in your question with a minimal example.

comment Typesetting scenes in a novel
@J.A.Rubio: (Untested) Try changing \blank[line] to \blank[fixed,line]. Normally, there is some glue associated with all vertical spaces. The keyword fixed kills that glue. To change the scene location italic, use \italic{\structureuservariable{...}{...}}. If these don't work, please post a new question with an example.

comment Creating separate pdf file containing the bibliography
Thanks for the detailed reply. It was a toss up between your solution and that proposed by Harish Kumar. The other solution works better simply because I can create two files in the same directory.

comment How do I create unequal column widths using columnsets?
I would suggest that you post this on the Context mailing list. The columnset code has not been ported to MkIV, and it would be done only if there is user demand (and user testing).

@cfr Perhaps that is the simplest method indeed.

comment Creating separate pdf file containing the bibliography
@HarishKumar: \includeonly only works with \chapter. I am using article class. (But I wonder if memoir with article option will work with \includeonly.

comment Converting DNG inline in a ConTeXt document?
luatex/pdftex can only include jpeg (including jbig), png, pdf, and a restricted version of eps files. So, you'll have to convert dng to one of these. The conversion to jpeg/png will be lossy; when you convert to pdf, you loose the compression features of dng. So, you'll have to choose your pick.

comment In ConTeXt, what command resets the font size to “normal” after e.g. \tfa?
\tfa etc. are not meant to be used for entire paragraphs. Just like \bf etc., in plain TeX, you should use them inside groups. If you want to explicitly set the font back to the "normal" font, you need to use \setupbodyfont[reset] or \setupbodyfont[reset, 11pt]

comment Choosing TeX engine for novel — just how unstable is LuaTeX?
The engine luatex is not "unstable". I have been using luatex since 2007-2008, and haven't encountered any limitation of the engine in the last 4 or 5 years. However, I mostly use ConTeXt which is guiding lot of the development of luatex, and therefore, the macro package tends to be in sync with luatex. The same is not the case with LaTeX where (AFAIU) some of the "instability" is due to packages not being up to date with the engine.

comment How to get ConTeXt “title” section into table of contents?
The wiki page that you linked says that you should use incrementnumber=yes for mkii and incrementnumber=list for mkiv.

comment Is there an “article class clone” for ConTeXt available anywhere?
@JosephWright: I use \endgraf out of habit. I quick grep of the context sources show that \endgraf is used 137 times while \par is used 286 times. Of course, grepping is not a reliable metric.
