Dear gang,

Sorry for being a pest;-) but have any of you had a chance 2 look at this? 
My own example is abstracted from a much larger typescript but I hope it 
illustrates the problem clearly enough.

Thank you

Dear crew,

I am having trouble defining my own font switches. I get an undefined 
sequence for, e.g, \mv,  with the following:


% output=pdf interface=en

\definestyle [myvariant] [\mv] []

\starttypescript [serif] [modern] [size]

  \definebodyfont [9pt,10pt,11pt,12pt,14.4pt,17.3pt,20.7pt]
    [mv=Serif sa 1]


\usetypescript [serif] [modern] [size]


This is a test.

\mv This is a test.


What am I missing? Thnx in advance!
