after Patrick Gundlach convinced me at DANTE 2006 to switch the small
scientific magazine project I'm currently working on for a client from
LaTeX co ConTeXt, I'm now preparing a sample document for my client to
convince him, and for that I need your help :)

I've spent the last two weeks getting in touch wich context and I must
say I'm really impressed, nice work!

First challenge is that the document fonts are URW GaramondNo8 for the
text and Bitstream Futura (really: Bitstream Geometric 211) for the
headings. I managed quite easyly to install them with texfont and the
instructions from the contextgarden wiki[1] and compile the sample
document with either font family. But now I'm trying to (1) understand
the typescript files and (2) build an own typescript putting those fonts
together. This is what I have so far:


\starttypescript [ifa][texnansi]
\definetypeface [ifa] [rm] [serif] [garamond] [default]
~                [encoding=texnansi]
\definetypeface [ifa] [ss] [sans] [futura] [default]
~                [encoding=texnansi]
\definetypeface [ifa] [tt] [mono] [modern] [default]
~                [encoding=texnansi]


\input knuth

\input knuth

(type-ugm.tex and type-bfu.tex are attached). What happens is: When I
compile the file a is it is set in computer modern. To enable my fonts I
have to comment out \starttypescript, \stoptypescript and \usetypescript
and enable \ifa. How do I activate my fonts via a typescript.
