[NTG-context] mathbold greek letters

2010-09-02 Thread Chen Shen
Hi all,

First I admit that I've never understood the typescript part of ConTeXt...
I've been using the following recipe for boldmath.
The latin letters appears fine in bold italic font, but the greek letters do
not appear.
---
\definetypeface [boldmath] [mm] [boldmath] [latin-modern] [modern]
[encoding=texnansi]
\setupbodyfont[10pt]

\starttext
$a b c \alpha \beta \phi$

$\bi a b c \alpha \beta \phi$
\stoptext
---

Looking at the log file, I found the following error message:

---
Missing character: There is no α (U+03B1) in font LMMath10-Regular!
Missing character: There is no α (U+03B1) in font LMMath10-Regular!
Missing character: There is no β (U+03B2) in font LMMath10-Regular!
Missing character: There is no β (U+03B2) in font LMMath10-Regular!
Missing character: There is no ϕ (U+03D5) in font LMMath10-Regular!
---

Apologize for dumb questions.
I wonder why LMMath Regular is looked-up here, I thought we should be
looking-up LMMathItalic10-Bold?

Thanks a lot.

regards,
ShenChen

Are you using MkIV? If so, an easier solution will be to use an opentype 
math font, like xits or cambria or asana math. Then you can simply use


$\bf a \alpha$

to get bold math.

Yes I use mkiv. Thanks for the hint. Will try opentype fonts later.
