Thank you very much for this; will test in the coming days (I have not
updated ConTeXt since Jan 28; hope there are are no deadly installation

How does this happen? I know the otp's have it so that numerals are always
typeset l-r, is there some nasty side-effect?
Hmm just checked:
produce two different results; the second one is correct. The otp includes
the separator as part of the number (unless it is isolated-) I will look
at the responsible otp to see if I can fix this at the otp level.

Ah! you also isolate the separators; should be possible in the otp...

Why is this?

I will look at it; need examples etc.
