Many thanks for your comments, Wolfgang. I really appreciate your help.

Many thanks for all the improvements. The original code only shows my
ignorance related to ConTeXt matters :-).

Sorry, but I don’t get it. Why do I need expansion when having more than
one arguments?

BTW, it isn’t clear to me what expansion may be.

To avoid name clashes, I replaced the command with \mypersonalurl.

Yes, but this is the workaround that came to my mind to solve the
following scenario: I may want to a special mono typeface only for urls.
This mono typeface would be different from the general mono font.

The problem when using \setupbodyfont or \switchtobodyfont is that it
doesn’t work with other sizes than the default one.

This sample shows the issue:

        [DejaVu Sans Mono]

    \tfxx smaller text with \anothermono\ss second mono.

Either I define the handwriting or calligraphy font for the same font
family, or I get wrong sizes when using other than the default.

Is this a bug or is my approach wrong?

BTW, if you allow me a question, I’d be very interested in setting up a
\hiddentitle that adds no extra vertical space (I need the \hiddentitle
to be displayed in the PDF bookmarks).

         This document is released to the public...

I need to have no space inserted by \hiddentitle. Otherwise, vertical
spacing in makeups won’t work.

Many thanks for your help again,
