Hi John,

Isn't [thanh] obsolete? See hand-def.tex for details: I think you want 
[normal], which hangs puntuation ([pure]), the Latin alphabet ([alpha]), and 
the rest of ascii characters ([extended]). Then you get full hanging. I tested 
palatino and the following works here:

=======================================================
\setupoutput[pdftex]%

\usetypescriptfile[type-enc]
\usetypescript [serif,sans,mono] [hanging] [normal]
\usetypescript [adobekb] [8r]
\usetypescript [palatino][8r]
\setupalign    [hanging] % NOTE no second argument
\setupbodyfont [palatino,12pt]

\showframe
\starttext

   \dorecurse{40}{lots of hy\-phen\-a\-tion\hyphen\ }
   \blank
   \dorecurse{40}{testing, test; }


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

Best
Idris
