[NTG-context] Typesetting abbreviations

What is the correct way to typeset an abbreviation in ConTeXt?  The space
after the full stop seems too big and if I use \thinspace, I cannot use
ties.

 

No command - space is too big

\starttext

Mr. John Doe

\stoptext

 

With tie - space is too big

\starttext

Mr.~John Doe

\stoptext

 

With \thinspace - looks right except at an end of line

\starttext

Mr.\thinspace John Doe

\stoptext

 

Any suggestions are welcome!

 

Thanks,

Clyde
