Hi, Hans

Here's an example of vertical typesetting in XeTeX.

%tex=xetex
\setuppapersize[A4,landscape,rotated, 270]
\definefontsynonym [song][name:AdobeSongStd-Light\xetexcolon vertical]
\definefont[Song][song at 14pt]
\starttext
\Song 你好
\stoptext

In this case all glyphs in AdobeSongStd-Light are rotated 90 degrees
via xetex vertical, and rotated back via paper definition.

I'm wondering how to do that in LuaTeX. Also, in vertical typesetting,
latin glyphs do not need to be rotated.

I'm doing this since omega multi-dir is not quite working at least for
the moment.
