Hi Klaus,

try this:
---------------
% engine=xetex
\definetypeface[MyFace][rm][Xserif][TeX Gyre Pagella]
\setupbodyfont[MyFace,10pt]
\starttext
\midaligned{\tfb\bf Arkadi und Boris Strugazki}
\blank
\midaligned{\tfb\bf Аркадий и Борис Стругацкие}
\blank[7*big]
\midaligned{\tfc\bf Milliarden Jahre vor dem Weltuntergang}
\blank
\midaligned{\tfc\bf За миллиард лет до конца света}
\blank[5*big]
\midaligned{\tfa\bf Eine unter seltsamen Umständen aufgefundene Handschrift}
\stoptext
---------------

if this doesn't work, you can mail me directly.

Greetings

Lutz
