[texhax] [NTG-context] Choosing TeX um ... stuff

Thanks for all the information, and for helping me update and refine my 
view of the (TeX) world.

For the project I'm doing now, which involves creating "desktop 
publishing type" documents (multiple text flows, explicit control of 
placement of text and graphic elements, etc.), ConTeXt seems to be 
winning hand's down.  I may also be using the XML features, so that's 
another plus.

However, I'm also attracted by the stability and widespread use of plain 
TeX and LaTeX.

It's clear from this that whatever path I take, there are lots of very 
knowledgeable and helpful people to get me over the hurdles.

Thank you!
