%D The following bunch of macros come from plain \TEX\ by
%D Don Knuth and deal with basic alignment. We just include
%D them here so that they can be used if needed. Normally,
%D \CONTEXT\ users will fall back on one of the three table
%D environments.
%D
%D The hidden names are somewhat adapted and we use other
%D local variables.
