[NTG-context] Changing font for math function

Hi Aditya,

Thanks for your remark: indeed with the correct use of \underline, I get what was intended, but somehow before yesterday ConTeXt was more tolerant and for years it accepted my wrong definition of \liminf…
However, with the new features of \setupmathematics, the underlined word lim has two colors: for instance with the option
		\setupmathematics [functioncolor=red]
the word lim is in red, but the underline is in black.

If I understand correctly, the option
	\setupmathematics [functionstyle=\normalrm, functioncolor=red]
uses the normal roman font in math mode, that is math italic if for instance one is using LM roman as text font. Am I right?

A final question: assuming one needs somewhere a command named weak limit, that is \weaklim, I tried the following definition:
	\definemathcommand [weaklim]  [limop] {\mfunctionlabeltext{weaklim}}
but I don’t get the word weaklim printed: what am I doing wrong?
Here is the example:

% begin weaklim.tex
\definemathcommand [weaklim]  [limop] {\mfunctionlabeltext{weaklim}}

If $\phi_{n}(x) := \sin(n|x|)$, then $\weaklim_{n\to\infty}\phi_{n} = 0$.

% end weaklim.tex 

Best regards: OK
