I am coming back to using ConTeXt after a relatively long hiatus,
so I am trying to re-learn old things and learn the new stuff.
Please bear with me.

I want to use OS X's Helvetica Neue Light in a document. How may
I do that?

I have tried:

\definefontfamily [myfamily] [serif] [Helvetica Neue Light]

but, fair enough, that results in `font with asked name 'unknown'
is not found`. If I use

\definefontfamily [myfamily] [serif] [Helvetica Neue]

then the document is typeset in Helvetica Neue, but in boldface.
Why? Using mtxrun, all the relevant files are found:

mtxrun --script fonts --list --all --pattern=neue*

helveticaneue helveticaneuebold /System/Library/Fonts/HelveticaNeue.dfont index: 13 helveticaneuebold helveticaneuebold /System/Library/Fonts/HelveticaNeue.dfont index: 13 helveticaneuedeskinterface helveticaneuedeskinterfaceregular /System/Library/Fonts/HelveticaNeueDeskInterface.ttc index: 9 helveticaneuedeskinterfacenormal helveticaneuedeskinterfaceregular /System/Library/Fonts/HelveticaNeueDeskInterface.ttc index: 9 helveticaneuedeskinterfaceregular helveticaneuedeskinterfaceregular /System/Library/Fonts/HelveticaNeueDeskInterface.ttc index: 9

How do I specify the font's weight?
