thanks to Adam, it was easy to implement font variants. A little bit 
more work was with all Storm glyph deffinition in two (+one) encodings. 
Before I will do the support for the rest of my Storm font families I 
want to ask audience (and especially Hans, Adam) to have a look into the 
files (http://typokvitek.com/tmp/context-storm.zip). Example in 
http://typokvitek.com/tmp/test-sdynamo.pdf (generaly interesting for all 
\show... font related command usage). Recommendation for the package 
improvements are welcomed.

There are:
   enco-st1.tex - ec encoding with storm glyph extension
   enco-st2.tex - xl2 encoding with storm glyph extension
   enco-st3.tex - variants (additional glyph) for enco-st1 and enco-st2
   type-sdynamo.tex - typescripts for Storm Dynamo font family
   math-sto.tex - simple mathematics present in Storm fonts (in progress)
   test-sdynamo.tex - test file
   test-storm.tex - support for tests


? During encoding deffinition I found some chracter name mess. I solved 
it by synonyms:
   E.g. \definecharacter textdag        {\dagger}
        \definecharacter paragraphmark  {\paragraph}
        \definecharacter textellipsis   {\ellipsis}
        \definecharacter textminus      {\minus}
        \definecharacter ostroke        {\oslash}
        \definecharacter textdollar     {\dollar}
Is there some context convention for character names?

? I have a problem to define mathematics chars. I did:
\starttypescript [math] [dynamoRE] [st1]
   \definefontsynonym [DynamoRE-Math-Letters]        [sdgr8te] 
   \definefontsynonym [DynamoRE-Math-Letters-Italic] [sdgri8te] 
   \definefontsynonym [DynamoRE-Math-Symbols]        [sdgr8te]
%  \definefontsynonym [DynamoRE-Math-Extension]        []

\starttypescript [math] [dynamoRE] [name]
   \definefontsynonym [MathRoman]     [DynamoRE-Math-Letters]
   \definefontsynonym [MathItalic]    [DynamoRE-Math-Letters-Italic]
   \definefontsynonym [MathSymbol]    [DynamoRE-Math-Symbols]
   \definefontsynonym [MathExtension] [ComputerModernMath-Extension]

\starttypescript [DynamoRE] [st1,st2]
   \definetypeface [DynamoRE] [ss] [sans] [dynamoRE] [default] 
   \definetypeface [DynamoRE] [mm] [math] [dynamoRE] [default] 

   \definemathcharacter [+] [bin] [sy] ["2B]
   \definemathcharacter [=] [rel] [sy] ["3B]



But I get error: !Math formula deleted: Insufficient symbol fonts.
Where is the problem?

? - \starttypescript [*] [fallback] is generaly useful. Is a good idea 
to move it from large type-buy.tex somewhere else?

? Storm fonts have different accent shapes for lover/upper case letters. 
Is there some mechanism to distinguish this making the composits?

Thank you
