Unnumbered Sections

LaTeX

In LaTeX, unnumbered sections, subsections, and so forth can be produced by adding an asterisk to the sectioning command, as in this example.

\section{A numbered section}
\subsection*{An unnumbered subsection}
\subsection{A numbered subsection}

\section*{An unnumbered section}
\subsection{A numbered subsection}
\subsection*{An unnumbered subsection}

\section{Another numbered section}

ConTeXt

ConTeXt provides the same functionality, but the names are different. The following table shows the correspondences:

Numbered Unnumbered
\part
\chapter \title
\section \subject
\subsection \subsubject
\subsubsection \subsubsubject

Thus, the previous example can be written in ConTeXt as the following:

\section{A numbered section}
\subsubject{An unnumbered subsection}
\subsection{A numbered subsection}

\subject{An unnumbered section}
\subsection{A numbered subsection}
\subsubject{An unnumbered subsection}

\section{Another numbered section}

And this produces the following typeset output. Note that, as with LaTeX, a numbered subsection of an unnumbered section doesn't work correctly. Here, unlike in LaTeX, it inherits the "parent" number from the preceeding numbered section.
