In html, one can <div class, id> and CSS styling with selection based on "class" or "id". Is it possible to do it similarly in ConTeXt?

For example, using "define" then "setup", then "start/stop"? From the document, I can see that one can define/customize "head". How about an arbitrary piece of text?

  • It’s not exactly classes or id”s, but \definehighlight may be what you’re looking for. Nov 22, 2013 at 20:58
  • \definehighlight and \definestartstop. Also look at Wolfgang Schuster's annotation module.
