[NTG-context] Typefaces ... how does this work?

This approach works well for me, no modules required:

(this is NOT a complete working example!)


\definefont[alt][fontname sa 1.0]

 Blah blah blah
 Blah blah {\alt boo hoo hoo}
 Blah blah blah

The "sa 1.0"is optional but if you want to adjust the alternate font
so the x heights match you'll need it.

"fontname" comes from running mtxrun --script fonts --list --all

I use this approach extensively and never had a hiccup but, as
always, your mileage may vary.

I want to adjust my document to have Lucida as main typeface, but
with brief passages (a few words at most) in a typeface that has the
IPA glyphs like Gentium.
