Dear all,

I tried to change the output format of \date so that the day includes the letter suffixes as superscript.

  \definefontfeature[sups][sups=yes,script=latn]
  \usetypescript[antykwa-torunska]
  \setupbodyfont[antykwa,12pt]

  \starttext
    \date[][day,{\setff{sups}th},~,month,year]
  \stoptext

I get the following error.

<inserted text> 
                \inaccessible 
<to be read again> 
                   {

                           sups}\attribute \zerocount 18\relax th}\hskip \da...

...
l.14 \date[][day,{\setff{sups}th},~,month,year]


BTW the output looks fine in spite of the error message.

Using superscripts in this way does not cause errors:

57{\setff{sups}th} or \date[][day,$^{\mr th}$,~,month,year]

What is going wrong here?

Thanks!
Florian
