[NTG-context] Using TABLE in a definition etc.

Dear gang,

I'm trying to setup a definition that uses a natural table and could use  
some guru help. Here is what I have so far:

\bTR \bTD \gulistan#1 \fontchar{#2} \eTD \eTR
\bTR \bTD #1 \eTD \eTR
\bTR \bTD #3 \eTD \eTR

Some issues:

1. '#' is probably active and being used in the internals, so of course I  
can't directly use it as an argument parameter. How do I work around it?

2. The '#1' at the end of '\gulistan' is meant to complete the name of a  
defined font, then that same parameter is used as a name in the next row.  
Am I doing this correctly? I.e., can I use an argument parameter to finish  
off a command like this? [Yes, my low level TeX is really quite rusty].

3. Once this table is defined correctly it will be used in a larger table,  

\bTR \bTD \Glyphbox{}{}{} \eTD \bTD  \Glyphbox{}{}{} \eTD \eTR
\bTR \bTD \Glyphbox{}{}{} \eTD \bTD  \Glyphbox{}{}{} \eTD \eTR

with arguments appropriately filled.

Thanks in advance for any and all advice, and

Best wishes
