[NTG-context] Courier font in TexLive

It appears that the Nimbus Mono L font that was substituted is close enough
to Courier for my purpose. The only place I use it is for a single, short
telegram. I will consider getting a newer version of TexLive for my next
book. You make a good argument for getting it on DVD rather than downloading

There used to be a zip with special font-support files for ConTeXt,
but I have no idea where those zips can be found now. (Maybe old DVDs
with TeX Live include the whole ConTeXt distribution.)

The easiest answer would be: "try to use a more recent ConTeXt
version". Else you can still try to write your own map file, but that
takes a bit of patience and knowledge (not particularly recommended).

If your question is of interest to others as well, please add an entry to
the Wiki!
