[NTG-context] getting new font variants to work

2010-06-03 Thread Michael Murphy

Hi all,

I'd like to get some new font variants defined, such as Medium, 
Semibold, etc. What I have so far is the following.


\definealternativestyle[medium][\me][]

\starttypescript [serif] [minionpro]
  ...
  \definefontsynonym[MinionPro-Medium][name:MinionPro-Medium]
  ...
\stoptypescript

\starttypescript [serif] [minionpro] [name]
  ...
  \definefontsynonym[SerifMedium][MinionPro-Medium]
  ...
\stoptypescript

\starttypescript [serif] [regular] [size]
  \definebodyfont [10pt, 11pt, 12pt] [rm] [%
it=SerifItalic sa 1,
bi=SerifBoldItalic sa 1,
bf=SerifBold sa 1,
tf=SerifRegular sa 1,
me=SerifMedium sa 1]
\stoptypescript

then I set up the font with

\definetypeface [adobe] [rm] [serif] [minionpro] [regular]
\setupbodyfont[11pt]

This all looks fine, but then

{\me This should be medium}

doesn't work, and neither does \me{...} or \medium{...}. I should say that

\definedfont[SerifMedium]

does work though. How can I fix this, short of

\def\me{\definedfont[SerifMedium]}

when the rest if the typescript works the problem lies here:

instead or additionally of \definealternativestyle[medium][\me][] use 
\definefontalternative[me]

then the command \me should be available.
the \definealternativestyle command is only for key value pairs in style= keys 
as far as i know


best regards
Bernhard
