Dear all,

Recently I read about the use of Harfbuzz-enhanced LuaTeX with LaTeX for writing Arabic. Following that example, I wrote a minimal test text that worked excellently for Kannada script as well:



ಇದು ಹೇಗಿದೆ? ನಾನು ಹೀಗೆ ತುಂಬ ಬರೆಯಬೇಕೆಂದು ಯೋಚಿಸುತ್ತಿದ್ದೇನೆ.

I want to do this in ConTeXt too! Can anyone tell me how to translate “\setmainfont{Kedage}[RawFeature={mode=harf;script=knda;}]” into ConTeXt? This could be the key to using MkIV with Indic scripts.
