I'm afraid your question is just too vague to allow for meaningful answers. The
LaTeX snippet doesn't help because we use ConTeXt. And the answer to "how can I
change a font only for a particular text" is
\bgroup\switchtobodyfont[something] text \egroup, but I'm sure you know this
command. So unless you give us meaningful details or better yet an example, it
