You don't need tfm files and you don't need to use texfont.pl. > I put the "rsfs" directory with its subdirs from the .zip to the folder > c:\context\tex\texmf-fonts\fonts\data\ as Wolfgang suggested  and ran > "context --generate".

For mkiv minimals, the following should work: a) Install font as appropriate for your OS. b) Make sure OS font directory containing font pfb file is included in OSFONTDIR c) Update LuaTeX's font info by running mtxrun --script fonts --reload d) Check the list of fonts using mtxrun --script fonts --list --all --pattern=* At that point you have the font known to LuaTeX. Then you need to set it up in your document; I posted a full example of that a while back, it's at http://pastebin.tlhiv.org/9GeRRcI4 but I haven't put it into the wiki yet. mathew -- <URL:http://www.pobox.com/~meta/> ___________________________________________________________________________________ If your question is of interest to others as well, please add an entry to the Wiki! maillist : email@example.com / http://www.ntg.nl/mailman/listinfo/ntg-context webpage : http://www.pragma-ade.nl / http://tex.aanhet.net archive : http://foundry.supelec.fr/projects/contextrev/ wiki : http://contextgarden.net ___________________________________________________________________________________
