comment More Math Fonts in ConTeXt
My instructions assumed that you are using ConTeXt standalone. The exact variable name might be different in texlive. ConTeXt runs step 3 in the background if a font is not found, and that might be the reason why it worked without that step as well.

comment Test whether CSV field is empty or not (ConteXt)
If \insert is an expandable command then \doifnotempty{\insert[acadtitle]} should work (no need to \expand). If it is unexpandable, then you can try \doiftextelse{\insert[acadtitle]}{true}{false}. If these don't work, then please post a minimal working example.

comment Conditional pagebreak depending on counter
Great answer! Some of this should be added the the wiki page on counters, which is very terse

comment How to search for information about ConTeXt in search engines?
It should be noted that context was named before there were search engines :-)

comment How to create a table (and nothing else) in Latex
It is a bad idea to convert text to jpeg. Converting to png is much better.

Use the standalone document class.

comment macro who argument is proxy of next page break or beginning of a new slide
ConTeXt should work with Tikz. Best is to use context standalone (which can be installed in parallel with texlive or miktex).

comment Limitations of ConTeXt?
If you are a graduate student in mathematics, physics, or (parts of) engineering, then you must learn latex to be able to submit papers to journals. None of the mainstream journals accept context. So, the return for the time invested in learning context is much less than that of learning latex.

comment ConTeXt: How to (force) capitalization of the first letter of some string?
This is by design. The idea is that if you want to prevent some words for being capitalized, you should use \Words{What words \word{mean}} which will be rendered as What Words mean. You can use \Word{Massively \word{Parallel Processing}}; if your input is simple text (does not contain macros), then you can also use a simple lua gsub function. \Word is a more complicated macro, because it also handles \word{Made by \CONTEXT} (note that the letters inside \TeX become lowercase).

comment Pass parameters to ConTeXt \component, \product, etc
Why not use a module instead of a component. You can pass parameters to modules.

comment Footnote complete citation, plus ibid, op, cit., etc (in ConTeXt)
Please also post on the context mailing list. The bibliography system has been revamped recently. Even if this is not possible currently, you will at least bring the problem to the attention of the developers.
