But, I don't find this point made anywhere in the Context Help or 
Tutorial, and find it hard to believe it's fully true.  Look for example 
at the third paragraph in the Help for ` (which is interpreted as 
Context), and the immediately following example.

These discussions all seem to (implicitly but very clearly) use ` as a  
_separator_  between cascaded contexts.  

For example, they contain examples including constructs like 
" Global` ".  Does that mean " Global Global " ??

Or " a`b`c " -- does that mean "a Global b Global c  " ??
