% symbols-001.tex

\starttext

     % for taco

     \definedfont[file:stmary10 at 100pt]

     \startTEXpage[offset=50pt]
         \fontchar{Yright}
     \stopTEXpage

\stoptext

So, access them by name.

I'll look into the cows later. Actually we need a nice open type variant 
(and then complete the font).
