[NTG-context] mathcal generates error in ConTeXt

Hi Jan,

Thanks, I was starting to think pandoc is not yet mature enough to handle
these conversions, but it looks like that might not be the case.

\mathcal works now, but I actually ran into another issue in my real
document. I have the following defined in my LaTeX:

*$C = ``\textrm{dad}``$*

It looks like context has a hard time compiling the above, even with
\starttext and \stoptext commands generated with the pandoc -s flag. Here's
the error:

*The control sequence at the end of the top line of your error message was
never*
*\def'ed. You can just continue as I'll forget about whatever was
undefined.*
*mtx-context     | fatal error: return code: 1*

How can I include quotes in math expressions the same way I do in LaTeX?

Regards,

Amine
