Isn’t the problem with context pub’s the format of the xhtml file, when I compile this example:

\setupbackend[export=yes,xhtml=yes]

\starttext

\startparagraph
The Earth, as a habitat for animal life, is in old age and
has a fatal illness. Several, in fact. It would be happening
whether humans had ever evolved or not. But our presence is
like the effect of an old|-|age patient who smokes many packs
of cigarettes per day – and we humans are the cigarettes.
\stopparagraph

\stoptext

I get a xhtml file with the following content (I removed the comments):

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' standalone='yes' ?>

<document xmlns:m="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML" version="0.30" language="en" date="Thu Feb 16 20:00:31 2012" file="test" context="2012.02.16 17:54" xmlns:xhtml="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

</document>

but the produced epub file doesn’t work on my ereader. After I changed the tags of the file to this:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8' standalone='yes' ?>

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
  <body>

I got now a epub file which renders on my ereader without problems.
