\setupencoding[default=texnansi]
\usetypescript[modern][\defaultencoding]
\setupbodyfont[modern,rm,11pt]

or

\usetypescript[modern][encoding=texnansi]
\setupbodyfont[modern,rm,11pt]

A question to Hans: I do not know much about fonts, but from what I
understand ec is ugly and one should use texnansi. So why does ConTeXt
default to ec. I am sure that for most users like, fonts in TeX is a
mystry, and they do not really care which font encoding is used, as
long as it works. So, can we move to texnansi as the default? Or is
there something at which ec is really better?
