Thanks Mojca for comments.
I agree that the output format can be set as needed (a lots of time of 
experimentation). But I needed a special sort of bibliographic items 
(numbering according to their occurrence in the text) and that I have 
unfortunately failed. For average amateurs are code modifications beyond 
its capabilities.
I just want to say that ConTeXt is absolutely amazing tool, but 
sometimes  without professional advice the desired result is unattainable.
When time is pressed and help not comming, sometimes a lot can be 
stressful. However, to not complaint BUT it is the mere statement. This 
conference is above standard and willing to help to laity.
