:p [it wouldn't surprise me if DEK were *capable* of doing such a thing...]
Actually, it reminds me quite a bit of one of the problems I had in some
math experiments yesterday. For me, the key was in the equivalent lines
to this:
\starttypescript [math,boldmath] [lucida] [special]

(Something in the past year changed so that a [special] typescript is
needed for a correct \usemathcollection.)

So, in response to David, just to make sure: you *do* have the (non-free)
Lucida fonts installed correctly? The typeset output is definitely
Lucida, albeit incorrect?

If so, then what about:
\usetypescript [lucida] [\defaultencoding]
\setupbodyfont [lucida,14pt]
\starttext etc.

(Apologies if this is off the mark. I don't have the TeXish lbr fonts, so
can't directly verify)
