Hi Thomas,

I had to do some work with regard to this issue recently.

What was mentioned on this list, is, that \fontchar is a command which will stay.

\setupbodyfont[Myfont,rm,12pt]
\definesymbol[Q.alt]  [\fontchar{Q.alt}]
\def\Qa{\symbol[Q.alt]}

The easiest way to get a stable environment is to use the char-names from the font. You can extract a table with all char-names with 

\usemodule[fnt-10]
\setupbodyfont[Myfont,rm,12pt]
\starttext
	\ShowCompleteFont{Myfont.otf}{10pt}{1} % fontname, size,columns
	% \ShowAllGlyphs   {Myfont}{48pt}{4} % fontname, size,columns  
\stoptext

Kind regards

Willi
