[NTG-context] textblocks in tables

Wolfgang, thank you for your answer!

However I suppose that it doesn't completely solve my problem. I think this solution makes a table with two huge cells. I couldn't make horizontal lines after every line and table splitting doesn't seem to work either (I have a lot of requirements).

Is there an other way to solve my problem with tables? I'd really like to automate the process because copy and paste the text is very error prone.

I looked at paragraphs as well but I didn't succeed. I thought inserting the necessary commands in the 'begin' and 'after' property of the textblock would 'generate' me correct ConTeXt code.

There is an other problem: The command \resetRequirement doesn't work. I need to reset the counter because the numbering must be the same like in the chapters before. I tried the code at live.contextgarden.net.

Tanks for your help!

Michael
