Hello,

Taco said on http://context.literatesolutions.com/collector/66
that the new \txt should solve my problem, but I cannot find the right way.
If nobody knows a solution, perhaps I'm going to translate the LaTeX macros
to ConTeXt (at least trying to ...).

Here is the LaTeX-code, that does the thing I'm looking for:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{mdwlist}
\begin{document}
\begin{basedescript}{\desclabelstyle{\pushlabel}\desclabelwidth{6em}}
\item[Short]  This is a shorter item label, and some text that talks about it.
The text is wrapped into a paragraph, with successive lines indented.
\item[Normal]  This is a normal item label, and some text that talks about it.
The text is wrapped into a paragraph in the same manner as above.
\item[Rather longer label] This is a longer item label.  It's somewhat an
exception.  As you can see, the text is pushed to the right, to leave some
place for the label.
\end{basedescript}
\end{document}
