# [NTG-context] Incorrect rendering of * with UTF math fonts

Wed Feb 22 20:52:22 CET 2012

```Hi,

Using * in superscripts gives wrong glyph size and spacing.

For example, with LM math everyhing looks fine:

\starttext
\$x^*\$ vs \$x^{\ast}\$
\stoptext

With Cambria, the result is OK (but you can still see the differences in
the spacing of * in x^*)

\usemodule[simplefonts]
\setmathfont[Cambria]
\starttext
\$x^*\$ vs \$x^{\ast}\$
\stoptext

With Neo Euler, \$x^*\$ look really bad.

\usemodule[simplefonts]
\setmathfont[Cambria]
\starttext
\$x^*\$ vs \$x^{\ast}\$
\stoptext

I cannot figure out why this is happening. It definitely looks like a bug
at the context end rather than a bug with the fonts.
