thanks very much for your help.  As a long-time plain TeX user, but a
ConTeXt n00b, that would have taken me a long time to figure out.

Having said that (and not to be ungrateful), for both of your examples
below, in my tests only the subsubject shows up in the contents. I tried
this both with the context distribution (updated a few minutes ago) and
with the version that is in texlive (also updated a few minutes ago).  Do
all three items show up in your contents listing?
