I cannot reproduce your problem. Take a look at this minimal example: %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% %% Pick one of the following for different types of bounding boxes. %\def\boxit#1{{#1}} %\def\boxit#1{\hbox{#1}} \def\boxit#1{\hbox{\strut #1}} \showmakeup \starttext The absolute value of \boxit{a} is positive.\crlf The absolute value of \boxit{\it a} is positive.\crlf The absolute value of \boxit{$a$} is positive.\crlf The absolute value of \boxit{b} is positive.\crlf The absolute value of \boxit{\it b} is positive.\crlf The absolute value of \boxit{$b$} is positive.\crlf The absolute value of \boxit{A} is positive.\crlf The absolute value of \boxit{\it A} is positive.\crlf The absolute value of \boxit{$A$} is positive.\crlf The absolute value of \boxit{B} is positive.\crlf The absolute value of \boxit{\it B} is positive.\crlf The absolute value of \boxit{$B$} is positive.\crlf \stoptext %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% The distance between the 'of' and the following letter is the same for a math mode $a$ or a regular roman a. Only if we switch to italics is a little extra space added. At least for my eye the letters are evenly spaced.
