Do I now understand correctly that I MUST use texfont first in order
to work with fonts in ConTeXt? I did not realize that when going over
to the new tetex setup. I guess the typescripts for the lm/cmr fonts
are ready-made in the context distribution?
Is there somewhere a script to do this (somewhat painless) for the
"regular" fonts in the teTeX distribution or should I generate just
by hand for whatever font I need?
(2) about math typesetting
Although computer modern (lm fonts) now appear in text, there is
something strange with math. Running the next example coming from the
ConTeXt manual (page 103):
\starttext
{$\sqrt{a^2 + b^2} = c\ \hbox{whatever} + \sin(2x)$} math\crlf
{$\bf \sqrt{a^2 + b^2} = c\ \hbox{whatever} + \sin(2x)$} boldmath BUT
`sin' ISN'T, sqrt NEVER IS \crlf
{$\bf\mf \sqrt{a^2 + b^2} = c\ \hbox{whatever} + \sin(2x)$} boldmath
NOW `sin' IS, sqrt NEVER IS \crlf
\stoptext
The second line doesn't show the "sin" in bold as contrasted with the
special remark in the manual. I does show in bold with \mf however.
Has the math behaviour changed meanwhile? Or does it point to still
another flaw in my setup?
The following fonts appear in the pdf (as seen in Adobe Reader):
CMMI12, CMSY10, LMRoman12-Bold (and 9), LMRoman12-Regular (and 9).
in comparison, the following LaTeX example has the right behaviour:
\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
{$\sqrt{a^2 + b^2} = c$} math\hfill\break
{\boldmath$\sqrt{a^2 + b^2} = c + \sin{}x$} boldmath\par
\end{document}
