Most ConTeXt users are on the ConTeXt mailing list, you should try to
asko your questions there. Yo can register on the following site:

ConTeXt can read and convert XML files to ConTeXt code on the fly, you
can also mix XML and TeX in one document. The system has currently two
different system to convert the XML tags into TeX commands, a older one
hat works with PDFTeX and LuaTeX and a new system (not finished) that
works only with LuaTeX but it is more powerful.

Hope to hear from you again on the ConteXt list.
