Hello everyone,

   I am a newbie to ConTeXt. I have no idea how to use the Times Roman font
   in ConTeXt. (in Latex, just \usepackage{times})

   I found something like this:   (http://home.salamander.com/~wmcclain/context-help.html)
   % Times font
   \usetypescript[berry][ec] % or [8r]
   hellow, world

   but an error occours:
kpathsea: Running mktexmf utmr8t
! I can't find file `utmr8t'.
<*> ...:=ljfour; mag:=1; nonstopmode; input utmr8t
Please type another input file name
! Emergency stop.
