I have sent Oleg the files that failed. I don't want to clutter the list. HIs 
example does not fail BTW.  

Why would I want to use eplain and Context together? Well, there are some 
things that eplain does better, such as indexing.  And I find it easier to 
manipulate a TOC to my liking in eplain. I can live without the combinatiion 
but eplain does make these things easier, just as TXSruled makes for easier 
manipulation of simple tables, such as an invoice.
