Is there a short, simple guide somewhere that shows how to use TTF and 
OTF fonts in Context? I downloaded the new Fonts chapter but it goes 
deep into the weeds on typescripts etc.  I am looking for a method 
that allows me to do in Context what I can already do in most other 
DTP programs: simply designate for use a font or font family that 
exists in /usr/share/fonts without typescripts, complex and confusing 
aliasing schemes or tfm files.
