This answer put me on the path to a solution of another
problem. I had an order form made up of two text blocks
with a table in the middle. It compiled fine so long as I
left the main body of my document out. When I brought
body.tex in to the run then the table portion started
giving errors. So I set up a special run which generated
just that page in a pdf file. However I didn't want to
shrink it as Hans suggested, and Context doesn't usually
cater to a full-page graphic nor does it let one pick an
origin point as such.
I finally found a way to move the origin point and then
brought the pdf into the page. I fooled with \inmargin,
\rput (pstricks), \kern,\leftskip and about half the
commands in the plain tex vocabulary. Here is a solution
that works, bringing in a page size graphic and placing it
properly on my page:
This has broader potential for assembling multiple pdf pages
into a single document. The glue sizes are of course
