comment Is there any way to suggest to ConTeXt to take advantage of multiple cores?
Well, I just copied someone else's competent answer, so all kudos should go to Taco.

comment Is there any way to suggest to ConTeXt to take advantage of multiple cores?
Some years ago, Taco Hoekwater, one of the main developers of luatex, wrote this on the context mailing list: "typesetting (currently) is a single-process streaming task, and that is not easily fixed at all." So for the time being, the answer to your question is "no."

comment \startcombination spanning multiple pages? (ConTeXt)
The source is in pack-com.mkiv, and it doesn't look like it could do what you want. However, the file also mentions that one could use one of the table environments, which can split across pages. But there may be a reason why you want to use combinations? If not, try, e.g., Natural Tables or Extreme Tables

Because I was too lazy to put a comment sign at all line endings...

comment ConTeXt \quote command resets font shape. Is this a bug?
This looks like a bug. You should report it to the mailing list.

comment ConTeXt: Change emphasis font when used within blockquote environment
Metafox's solution is cleaner than mine, so just disregard it. However, blockquote is defined in the context core. I don't know if that will create problems.

comment ConTeXt: Avoid text overflow into right-hand margin
I'm not quite sure what you want: your code has alignment as hanging and hz, that would suggest you want protrusion. At the same time, you want no hyphenation and a monotype font - this looks somewhat contradictory to me. And the image with your desired output seems to show text that is aligned flushleft, and you don't seem to mind unequal lines. So: the one word that sticks out is a compound. You can add setbreakpoints [compound] to your code, and it will break the line at the hyphen within the word. You can also change tolerant to verytolerant. But I'm not quite sure what you want.

comment How do I insert a \in cross reference across components?
Just in case it's useful: there's also a special magazine about cross-referencing between documents; have a look at the pragma website

comment How to use ConTEXt to typeset Arabic, and color diactrical marks?
As I wrote: I used Khaled's code from the answer you linked to (replacing his sample text with yours). I don't know what you mean by "context setup." If you want help, you will have to supply more information: what version are you running, what error messages (if any) did you receive? The information you gave was incomplete and misleading.

comment Why does ConTeXt keep telling me “source file is not found”?
I never said it wasn't confusing :-). As much as I love this new font mechanism, I have at times given up and written a good old-fashioned typescript because I couldn't make it find the font I wanted to use. And I'm not a huge fan of this idea of making system fonts available. I have disabled searching my system font directories (too much interference with similar fonts and names); when I want to use a font with context, I copy it over to my local texmf tree. That way, I have more control.

comment Why does ConTeXt keep telling me “source file is not found”?
I can only refer you to a message from the list in which Wolfgang (the guy who wrote this mechanism) explains it. So yes, the answer that Aditya gave in the question you mention appears to be incorrect.
