Layout and Positioning

In order to preserve a constant interlinespace (esp. when using a quite small one, in footnotes or such) it can be sometimes necessary to chance the predefined ration of height/depth:

\starttext
   \hbox to \hsize \bgroup \showbaselines \showstruts
       \ruledvtop \bgroup \hsize.45\hsize
           \switchtobodyfont[rm,9pt]\setupinterlinespace[line=9.8pt]
           \begstrut \input tufte \endstrut \endgraf
       \egroup
       \hss
       \ruledvtop \bgroup \hsize.45\hsize
           \switchtobodyfont[rm,9pt]\setupinterlinespace[line=9.8pt,height=.79,depth=.21]
           \begstrut \input tufte \endstrut \endgraf
       \egroup
   \egroup
\stoptext

(The values .79 and .21 in the example are dependent on the actual font used.)
