Very interesting, but with these definitions, I can't get roman characters in formulae. For the moment, the best solution for me is still the hbox wrapper. Okay. What do you mean by "can't get roman characters"? Can you give an minimal example?

Sorry, I should have given one.

\startmathcollection[default] \definemathcharacter [a] [nothing] [mi] ["61] \stopmathcollection

\definetypeface [] [mm] [bfmath] [computer-modern] [computer-modern] \setupformulas [method=bold]

\starttext \formula{a, {\rm a}, {\bfm a}, {\bfm\rm a}} \stoptext

I can't get bold roman math. And by using [mr] instead of [mi]: \definemathcharacter [a] [nothing] [mr] ["61] one gets the inverse problem: no more bold math italic.

oh, I see. I'll admit: all the maths I've dealt with don't require such fine manual control over the fonts. Would it be for individual characters? Would an approach like this work? \formula{a, {\rm a}, {\bfm a}, \text{\bf a}} adam -- =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Adam T.
