Dear Jonathan and Adam,

With both your help I have been using XeTeX in ConTeXt. I have recently 
used Gerben's installer to upgrade: Based on the latest TeX Live 
snapshot and teTeX 3 (2005 install). I had to reinstall XeTeX. When I 
follow Adam's instructions from ConTeXtWiki which worked in the past I 
can only get the transcript below. Am I doing something very silly? 
When INITEX starts I seem to be in the wrong place. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.
Charlie Doherty
