# [NTG-context] Description nesting

Hello,

Is there a way to nest some descriptions, where the nested descriptions
respect the enclosing indentation?

Funnily the wiki speaks about the subject
(http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Description) but doesn't give any solution
(btw, the given solution to have several paragraphs in a description looks
obsolete since \start \stop works pretty well).

Here is an example that I would like to see working:

\definedescription[descr][

\setupwhitespace[medium]

\starttext

\startdescr{Para}
This is a shorter item label, and some text that talks about it.
The text is wrapped into a paragraph, with successive lines indented.

This is another paragraph under the "Para" item.

\startdescr{SubPara1}
This is a shorter item label, and some text that talks about it.
The text is wrapped into a paragraph, with successive lines indented.
\stopdescr
\startdescr{SubPara2}
This is a shorter item label, and some text that talks about it.
The text is wrapped into a paragraph, with successive lines indented.
\stopdescr
\stopdescr

\stoptext
