[NTG-context] Why I needed \parbox and why does \framed not work here?

Hi Gerben,

There is no worry about the mentioned chaos. You might be lucky, that 
your definition is giving a result at all.

If you consult the manual or read the article in the MAPS22 on 
tabulating, you will see, that you missed a correct setup of the tabulation.

I attach my version and it works.
