[NTG-context] Typesetting without interpunctation and interword space

Hi all,

I want to typeset poems in a special way.

I want to achieve something like Capitalis quadrata which was used by
the Romans in stone.

See here:

One stream of letters without spaces and interpunctation.

The input files I have to use are written as usually:

This is a line,
that is a line,
and a third line as well

I want to typeset the whole poem in the Capitalis quadrata way:


The whole poem forms one block of upper case letters.

No interword spacing.

I guess that I can make my hands dirty with lua and write a filter that skips
all interpunctation and spaces, converts the whole text to lower- or uppercase
and after this use a special font with nice upper case letters.

But I need a special hyphenation that hyphenates just were the
line ends.

Any hints how to achieve this?
