Hi Jacko!

Ok, I tried the following:
\setupbodyfont[17pt]
\definedfont[ec-lmr17]
\starttext
\S1
\blank[big]
\S2\crlf\S3
\stoptext

and got a test.pdf with the following pdffonts output:
name                                 type         emb sub uni object ID
------------------------------------ ------------ --- --- --- ---------
ZASPBF+LMRoman10-Regular             Type 1       yes yes yes      7  0
TMBLAG+LMMathSymbols10-Italic        Type 1       yes yes no      10  0
CWHICF+LMRoman17-Regular             Type 1       yes yes yes     13  0

Then I opened it with
	xpdf -t1lib no test.pdf
(it is true that xpdf exhibits the same problems with t1lib turned off)

And now, surprisingly, the problems occur at different resolutions:
400%:	good
200%:	the \S symbols are too small and to low
125%:	good
100%:	BAD, the symbols touch each other
50%:	as far as I see like 200%

Attached as usual the respective screen shots.

Best wishes

Norbert
