Oh good. The available fonts and metrics (sadly) vary with every
distribution, so that's a hard thing to get right.

Sorry the code was dense. If you want it broken down and explained, let
me know.

The attachment was probably too big for the list--if you want another
pair of eyes on it, feel free to send it off-list.

Yeah, I picked up the Fleurons of Hope recently, and have been thinking
of interesting ways to use it in ConTeXt.

I think Bill McClain's page is a great place to start. My MyWays sort of
pick up on topics after that.

Dive in!
