\framed and \setupframed do not seem to have font switching options,
although \setupframedtexts and \start-\stopframedtexts do
([style=\ssxx,before=\setupinterlinespace]).

Indeed, \setupinterlinespace does not even work inside the argument to
framed, e.g,

\framed[width=1.2cm,align=left,frame=off,autowidth=force,strut=on]
{\ssxx\setupinterlinespace This is a test of interlinespace}

does not adjust the interlinespace (Is this a bug, Hans?)

What works so far is

\startMPenvironment
\ssxx\setupinterlinespace
\stopMPenvironment

in the preamble.

Thnx again for your help, still working through things so i may be back;-)

Best
Idris
