Hi guys,

Why doesn't this definition use the old style numerals that come with the font?
It seems to use the latin modern font when I try to use \os.  Small caps are
working fine.

I'd like all the numbers in the document to be typeset in old style numerals
unless I tell it otherwise, btw how do I achieve the latter?  As in break out of
onum and typeset in the normal numbers?

I'm using TeXlive 2008 on vista, the pdf reports that I'm using XeTeX version;
2008.05.21 15:21.

{\sc On the \CONTEXT\ mailing list, occasionally a user asks if
we can post a complete document with the associated style.
One reason for not honouring this request is that we want
users to cook up their own styles. Besides that, there are a
couple of styles in the regular \CONTEXT\ distribution.}

wonder what style was used to achieve its look and feel. We

examples, the reader will accomplish the skills to define

some time explaining features not described in the manuals.
The design of this document is to a large extent determined
by its purpose, and as a result not always functional. Also
the order of presenting features, tips and tricks is kind of
random and unstructured. The idea is that the visual effects
will draw you to the right trick. Also, if you realy want to
benefit from these features, there is no way but to read the
whole story.}
