Hi Otared,

I have been very interested in using XeTeX for Arabic script in 
conTeXt. However, my attempts at doing this have all failed, mainly 
because I don't understand how the XeTeX font declarations should work 
inside the preamble of a conTeXt document.

So, like Musa, I would be very interested in seeing a sample document, 
if you would be willing to share.
