[NTG-context] Minimal example for Cyrillic

Here's a full working Cyrillic (and Greek) example, with comments:

% Example of Cyrillic in ConTeXt.
% For plain text, I'm using Gentium Plus, which has more glyphs but doesn't yet
% have bold and italic variants.
% You can obtain Gentium Plus from http://scripts.sil.org/gentium
\starttypescript [serif][gentium][name]
  \definefontsynonym [Serif]        	  [name:gentiumplus]
  \definefontsynonym [SerifBold]		    [name:gentiumbasicbold]
  \definefontsynonym [SerifItalic]      [name:gentiumbasicitalic]
  \definefontsynonym [SerifSlanted]     [name:gentiumplus]
  \definefontsynonym [SerifBoldItalic]  [name:gentiumbasicbolditalic]
  \definefontsynonym [SerifBoldSlanted] [name:gentiumbasicbold]
  \definefontsynonym [SerifCaps]        [name:gentiumplus]

% Now define a typescript which groups together the three chosen fonts, and
% sets their relative sizes.
% Two arguments: 'myfonts' is the name, 'default' is the character encoding.
\starttypescript [myfonts][default]
    % For each typeface definition:
    % - The first parameter is the name for the typeface collection, which
    %   may be a font family, or just a set of fonts that work well together.
    %   Whatever the case, it's the name we'll use to select this set of
    %   fonts later.
    % - The next parameter is a basic style; typically we'll have one line
    %   for each basic style, but I'm skipping mm (math mode) in this example.
    % - Then there are three arguments which are used to locate a typescript
    %   defined earlier. Note that [default] matches our earlier definitions
    %   because they were all implicitly in the default text encoding.
    % - Finally, any options, most commonly adjustments to relative scaling
    %   so the fonts work together.
    \definetypeface [nicefonts][rm][serif][gentium] [default]

% Now tell ConTeXt to actually execute the typescript we defined immediately
% above, and hence any typescripts it depends on.
% This executes the \definetypeface calls to define our typeface set.  Again,
% myfonts is the name of the typescript, default is the character encoding.

% Finally, use that typeface set, at 10pt base size.
% Calling setupbodyfont changes headers and footers as well as body text;
% switchtobodyfont just changes body text.

% And finally, the actual document

Here's some Greek too:
