I try to use new TeX format ConTeXt, but I find that some TeX primitives don't act any more. How sad I am when I find that.
An simple example is that in plain TeX, we can set the spaces between paragraphs like this
\font\twelverm=cmr12 \twelverm \parskip=14pt The first paragraph.\par The second paragraph. \bye
Unfortunately, when I do the same in ConTeXt it do nothing. It only support
\setupwhitespace but not the original
I am a newbie in ConTeXt, I only want to know why.
