# [NTG-context] setupinterlinespace top and height relations

hi all,

As a grid system fetishist, I  would like to align the top of my first line with the top of the layout frame.
Using try and error (still a context newbie) I managed this by "\setupinterlinespace [height=.5, top=.7]".

this seems strange to me, because i was expecting that the argument top is the only one that controls \topskip.

Is there a graphic that shows the relation between the arguments of setupinterlinespace?

best michael
