Context

To make matching Dictionary entries depend on words or phrases (context items) in the surrounding text block (visible in the ETA document view).

#cond:context context_item_list

The context items list is a space separated list of context items, each of which may be prepended with a "+" or a "-". For example:

#cond:context -www -Internet +building construction

Context items are case insensitive.

Context items operate as follows, depending on the prepended sign:

Warning: Note: that a single unprepended context item behaves the same as a "+" prepended item with the same text.

Each #cond:context command clears and supersedes the previous one.
