Hi Steve,

This is the problem. This encoding typescript either 1) doesn't help
resolve to the actual filenames, or 2) sends ConTeXt into a loop. (You
are, in effect, saying "The font Baskerville-Italic resolves to the font

Judging from the results of fondu and what texfont does, you probably
want (in the place of the above typescript):

\starttypescript [serif] [baskerville] [texansi]
  \definefontsynonym [Baskerville] [texnansi-Baskerville] [encoding=texansi]
  \definefontsynonym [Baskerville-Bold] [texnansi-BaskervilleBold]
  \definefontsynonym [Baskerville-Italic] [texnansi-BaskervilleItalic]
  \definefontsynonym [Baskerville-BoldItalic] [texnansi-BaskervilleBoldItalic]

>\starttypescript [baskerville] [texansi]
>  \definetypeface [baskerville] [rm] [serif] [default] [encoding=texansi]

oops, you're missing an argument:
\definetypeface [baskerville] [rm] [serif] [baskerville] [default]

That should probably do you...
