[NTG-context] how to define a new math symbol

Great, it works! Running "texexec --pdf test-prodint" worked immediately, but "xdvi test-prodint.dvi" gave me an error relating to mktexpk not being able to create a bitmap font. Solved this problem by running "updmap --enable Map prodint.map". 

I don't think I could have done this myself, as I do not understand some of the steps in your solution.

Thank you very much!

That last bit of information is crucial, because there is a difference
between font handling between CM/Lm and commercial fonts.

I've been skyping with Hans and he came up with the code below.
You can use the font files from the LaTeX zip, you just have to
make sure that pdftex can find the (map) file, of course.
