Hi Andrea,

I think there are now two different issues causing problems here.

i) There is a font problem with s-pre-08, as noted by Mojca and Saji,
but you don't get far enough to run into it.

ii) You are using funny characters in your file. When I copy and paste 
your input into TeXShop,
I get the same error message, which baffled me quite a bit. Then I  
noticed when I remove the blank line
between % demoTest and \TitlePage, the latter will be become colored 
like a comment. This means that
your line end characters aren't the right ones. You can make this 
plainly visible by opening your file
with something like BBedit. There is a funny character in front of 
\TitlePage. You need to get rid of it.


Unfortunately, I have no idea how you managed to get the character in 
the first place. Are you using MacOsRoman as the encoding
(shows in "Save As")?

Try to paste the following into TeXShop (I guess you will then run into 
a font issue later...)

\usemodule[pre-08]

\starttext
\TitlePage
   {Fancy Styles:\\layers}

\StartIdea
   \StartSample
     \input tufte
   \StopSample
   \StartText
     \input reich
   \StopText
\StopIdea

\StartIdea
   \StartSample
     \input knuth
   \StopSample
   \StartText
     \input reich
   \StopText
\StopIdea

\stoptext
