On the ConTeXt wiki, http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Protrusion#MkIV, some examples are given of how to use Termes fonts and how to use microtypographical extensions. The bottom example works, but

  • I am unable to change fonts successfully
  • I am only able to enable the microtypographical extensions by using the last example.

Thanks in advance.

All I can say: is 'Works for me'. What version of ConTeXt are you using? – Taco Hoekwater Mar 12 '11 at 7:33
Mk IV, installed it from Debian with apt-get install context, I think it comes from TeX Live 2009._something_. I am compiled the file using: context [file]. All other things seem to work. – Joe Mar 13 '11 at 14:54

Your ConTeXt is probably too old to work properly, you will need a newer ConTeXt. The easiest way to get one is to install the standalone context installation, see the ConTeXt minimals page in the Contextgarden wiki for details. You can install that distribution without it interfering with anything else in your systems, and it is easy to keep it up-to-date with the recent developments.
