Hi Adam,

Yes it is, of course!

But by using HelveticaNeue as is, there is no kerning information included. The result is quite poor, as you can imagine. And as I don't know how to set a proper kerning (in reasonable time) AND how to get it available in ConTeXt I see no other alternative than using Helvetica and use the kerning information that is included in Adobes afm/tfm/vf files (being part of tetex).

But if someone want to show me the path to proper TeX kerning I'd also prefer HelveticaNeue, no doubt!
