My input for ConTeXt is:

\usetypescriptfile [adobekb]
\setupencoding [default=ec]
\usetypescript [adobekb] [\defaultencoding]


   Howth  {\em H\k{o}f\dh i} / {\em H\k{o}f\dh a},

Output from the console says that \dh is an undefined control sequence.
This and similar commands are mentioned in Kopka and Daly: A guide to

produce the black rule. I would be happy if just the \dh worked.
