Hi,

thanks Patrick for the example. The only thing is, that \useURL does not
hypenate.

In Context there is also a command \hyphenatedurl:

From:
\hyphenatedurl{http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/cgi-bin/ptext?doc=Perseus:text:1999.01.0218:book=1:line=1}

However you will loose the interactivity.

Another approach is then to use Patrick's example like

\setupoutput[pdftex]
\setupcolors
[state=start]
\setupinteraction
[state=start,color=blue]

\useURL
[hyphenated]

[{http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/cgi-bin/ptext?doc=Perseus:text:1999.01.0218:book=1:line=1}]
[]
[\tex{Odysee from Homeros on the Internet}]

\starttext

\hyphenatedurl{http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/cgi-bin/ptext?doc=Perseus:text:1999.01.0218:book=1:line=1}

\stoptext

Don not to forget to enclose the very long URL in braces! - Otherwise
the requested page is not loaded.
