You would need to use two different fonts as in LaTeX with PostScript 
fonts? In LaTeX we have the 8t type font file having the T1 font 
encoding, and then we have the 8c type font file with TS1 font 
encoding, which has currency symbols, old style figures, small caps, 

How does ConTeXt produce these files?

I don't want to start a flame war against ConTeXt, I just want to see a 
solution very close to perfection, just like some things in ConTeXt can 
work. With perfection I don't want to describe the ease of getting 
*some* solution, perfection would be to fetch up to 512 glyphs from a 
Unicode encoded TrueType font of a few thousand glyphs and make them 
usable in (La)TeX. I mean outside any specific TeX dialect.
