ConTeXt has a whole bunch of possibilities to typeset tables. Not each provides everything you may need, and the older ones are deprecated.
* [[tabulateTabulate]] (tabulation, '''recommended for simple requirements''')* [[tableTABLE]] (natural tables, HTML tables, '''recommended''')* [[xtables]] (extreme tables – mostly compatible to natural tables, better for page breaking)* framed tables (for simple tables that span hundreds of pages) Older ones: * [[Table]] (TaBlE, '''deprecated''')* [[tablesTables]] (multipage TaBlE, '''deprecated''')* [[TABLELinetable]] (natural "new" multipage tables, HTML '''experimental''' and probably obsolete) Note that you can use natural and extreme tableswith the old Table/Tabulate syntax. (To make this even more confusing...If you have simple tables with lots of contents, and you're tired of typing <code>\bTR\bTD</code>s or <code>\NC\NR</code>s, you can also have a look at* [[linetableM-database|database]] module and its [http://dl.contextgarden.net/myway/csv.pdf manual].* [[wikitable]], a TABLE wrapper that uses MediaWiki syntax* [http://tug.org/TUGboat/Articles/tb28-3/tb90mahajan.pdf ConTeXt basics for users: Table macros] and [http://www.tug.org/TUGboat/Articles/tb29-1/tb91mahajan.pdf Table macros II] by Aditya Mahajan (new multipage tables2007 and 2008).
