```A font problem -- again. I am so sorry.

I try to use the URW postscript fonts with the stand-alone
mswincontext.zip distribution. Everything else seems to work fine, but
when I say:

\usetypescript[pos][\defaultencoding]
\setupbodyfont[pos,11pt]

I get a bunch of complaints from Acroread, and it uses Helvetica
everywhere. (The same happens with Postscript instead of pos.)

The reason is rather clear, the log has the following rows:

etc.

So, the system tries to find the Adobe fonts which I do not have. Their
URW counterparts are included in the stand-alone distribution, but the
system does not seem to look for the u***** fonts.

I do not claim to understand the complete font mess, but ConTeXt seems
to get the right map files:

fonts           : resetting map file list
fonts           : using map file: original-base
fonts           : using map file: ec-public-lm
fonts           : using map file: ec-base
fonts           : using map file: original-ams-base

fonts           : using map file: texnansi-base
