This is not so much a question of the format (LaTeX or context) but of
the underlying engines and the fonts. E.g. dvidpfmx seems to do it fine,
but pdftex needs special map files:

The unicode orientated engines xetex (with latex or context) or luatex
(for which adequate support exists currently only in context) will
probably work out of the box.
