Hi syndicate,

I have found a serious problem in the latest ConTeXt: when using
\rotate[]{}, \raise does not seem to work probably. Consider the
following example, simplified from a larger macro:

=============test-rotate-c.tex================
\def\cupd{\leavevmode\rotate[rotation=180]{c}} % ConTeXt dependent!

\def\HAMZAH{\leavevmode\raise.9ex\hbox{\txx\cupd}{}}
\def\AYN   {\leavevmode\raise.9ex\hbox{\txx c}{}}

\def\'{\HAMZAH}
\def\`{\AYN}

\starttext

\`ish\=a\'

\stoptext
=============================================

In ConTeXt-2003.2.11, both the `c' and the rotated `c' appear at
the same height. In the latest ConTeXt the rotated `c' is not as
high as the normal `c'.

Please advise;-)

  Best
  Idris
