    Preposition "into"

    I want to provide you with some insight and contextinto how the political development process is working in Hong Kong - and what the future holds in this regard.

    The question is about the preposition "into". Insight into how the ... is fine, but do we say "context into something"?

    Tdol, thanks. But could you explain a little further? I don't quite get your reply. What does "alone" relate to "Context into something"?
