In a previous question I got recommended to use \EveryPar instead of \everypar.

What is the difference between the two?

Are there other commands that I should capitalize the same way in ConTeXt?

  • I don't know much about ConTeXt, but I guess that \EveryPar provides some interface for using the primitive \everypar that's not so easy to deal with. – egreg Mar 25 '13 at 23:13

From syst-aux.mkiv:

It's common use to use \everypar for special purposes. In ConTeXt we use this primitive for locating sidefloats. This means that when user assignments to \everypar can interfere with those of the package. We therefore introduce \EveryPar.

The same goes for \type \EveryLine. Because TeX offers no \everyline primitive, we have to call for \everyline when we are working on a line by line basis. Just by calling \EveryPar{} and \EveryLine{} we restore the old situation.
