>Greetings (first post),

Hi Gavin,

Two things:
Are you running texfont from the directory that contains all the .otf files?

(This doesn't look like the problem here, but) Are you running the
latest ConTeXt? There was a bug in the OpenType support in TeXFont that
was fixed  in the distribution as of a couple months ago.

(sorry for the delay--I'm on the road)
