# Re: [NTG-context] Re: How to use PostScript font (SOLVED)

Okay.  Problem solved.  The thing is that I did not ask the texlive
distribution to install the extra fonts package.  The palatino fonts were
part of the extra fonts. 

Now I have another question.  It seems like \setupbodyfont[palatino] produces
different results than \setupbodyfont[ppl].
The former tries to use palatino in all the variations in the following
example.  The palatino fonts seems to be missing the serif variant, so the
\ss and the normal lines look the same---i.e ConTeXt decided to use the same
roman variant for both the \rm and the \ss line.  Even the equation uses some
sort of postscript font that I am not familiar with.

The latter---\setupbodyfont[ppl]---is not very forceful---it uses palatino in
the \rm, \em, and \sl lines.  Everywhere else the CMR font is used.

What causes this behavior?

\usetypescript[berry][ec] % or [8r]
\usetypescript[palatino][ec] %
\setupbodyfont[palatino]
%\setupbodyfont[ppl]
