Ok, thanks Luigi.

This is how I sorted it out, hope it may help someone. It looks like I
should write a typescript and a symbol definition file, but I new to this
and don't know how to do it yet.

This is a workaround for the meantime:

- Download the free True Type font Zapf Dingbats BT from
http://www.ufonts.com/fonts/zapf-dingbats-bt.html
- You should have got the file ufonts.com_zapf-dingbats-bt-2.ttf or an EXE
file -an installer-
- In windows 7 it may be installed by clicking install -context menu,
right mouse click-
- Generate Context font database:

mtxrun --script fonts --reload

- Check it's been read:

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

- You should have several lines like zapfdingbatsbt
zapfdingbatsitcbybtregular
  c:/windows/fonts/ufonts.com_zapf-dingbats-bt-2.ttf
- Finally this is how I get the characters I need:

\definefont[zapfdingbats][ufonts.com_zapf-dingbats-bt-2.ttf at 10pt]

\starttext

Testing: {\zapfdingbats \char109}  %shadowed white circle

\stoptext


in the distrubution from the contextgarden

\definefont[zapfdingbats][ZapfDingbats]

should work as well

There is the typescript, but not

Beware of sites like this. There are many commercial fonts there.

 copied the .tfm, .enc and .map files in texmf-context/fonts as well as
 symb-uzd.tex in texmf-context/tex/context/third
You  need the font --- the type1 file
IIRC, the font was included with the Reader5 --- see
ftp://ftp.adobe.com/pub/adobe/acrobatreader/win/5.x/
BTW, the files are for mkii.

[NTG-context] Zapf Dingbats font

I have downloaded the
symb-uni-zapf.ziphttp://dl.contextgarden.net/websitesarchive/atl/tex/symb-uni-zapf.zip
file
from http://dl.contextgarden.net/websitesarchive/atl/tex/. Then I unpacked
it and copied the .tfm, .enc and .map files in texmf-context/fonts as well
as symb-uzd.tex in texmf-context/tex/context/third

I then run

mtxrun --script fonts --reload
and

context --generate

I tried

usetypescriptfile[symb-uzd.tex]
\usesymbols[uzd]

\symbol[Unicode Shadowed Shapes][LowerRightDrop-shadowedWhiteSquare]


but it doesn't work. Any ideas?
