The virtue of the Context system of font specification lies in the ability to
change sizes with \tfb, \tfx etc. For a single size used for e.g, title page
I use a regular TeX \font statement. For example after I fought through the
AGaramond problem for body fonts, with great help from this list, I still
retained some additional special statements like:
\font\MySans uhvbo8r at 30pt
\font\BigSans uhvb8r at 30pt
\font\MedSans uhvb8r at 20pt
This is a bit tedious but pretty much mistake proof. And the call for each
variant is simple.
Able Indexing and Typesetting
Precision typesetting (tm) at reasonable cost.
