( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

ConTEXT looked interesting, so I decided to check it out. Unfortunately, there was one really annoying thing about it that was so obvious, I wonder if there's something wonky with the copy I downloaded.

I went to edit a C or Perl file, and created a new function, as thus:

sub foo {

When I pressed enter, though, instead of indenting two spaces from the column "sub" started in (as it should according to the setting of 2 in C/Java Block Indent), it indented two spaces from the column the opening curly brace was in, like so:

sub foo { # When I pressed enter, #<< cursor started here.

It worked fine if I put the opening curly on the next line, but that totally goes against my style. This just seems so off that I had to ask... Is this normal? Does your copy do that? Note, I downloaded the newest version available on their website (0.97.2a). I haven't (yet) tried an older version. Er, make that "They don't have an older version available."

As a side note, I have to say that I personally use Vim exclusively, and usually use GVim unless I'm editing something quick in the console, but I'm evaluating other Windows editors because my girlfriend is taking a couple of programming classes now and she needs something decent, that isn't as complicated as Vim.
