I'm trying to use  Unicode.otf from http://users.teilar.gr/~g1951d
I just copied it into
texmf/fonts/opentype/unicodesymbols/Unicode.otf
run
luatools --generate
and test

%%%test0012.tex
\definefont[WhatEver][Unicode]
\starttext
\WhatEver Hello
\stoptext

with
texmfstart texexec --luatex test0012.tex

Result:
!luaTeX error (file
/opt/texlive/ContextMKiv/tex/texmf/fonts/opentype/public/unicodesymbols/Unicode.otf):
can't find table `CFF '
 ==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!

(I'm using
This is LuaTeX, Version snapshot-0.20.2-2007121721 (Web2C 7.5.6)
ConTeXt  ver: 2008.01.02 14:18 MKIV  fmt: 2008.1.10  int: english/english
)

Hence, I saved Unicode.otf as UnicodeSymbols.otf with fontforge (saved
as Opentype CFF)
%%%test0012.tex
\definefont[WhatEver][UnicodeSymbol at 100pt]
\starttext
\WhatEver Hello
\stoptext
now works .
Do I have make some mistake ?
And How can I quicky  access symbols like U+25c9 ?
