Symbols/utf8

From ConTeXt wiki

When you use ConTeXt with the LuaTeX engine (Mark IV) all utf8 characters from your font may be directly used in your code. This may increase human readability or simplify typing some rare words (like foreign names).

Following list (of personally selected symbols) may be used for direct copy/pasting of characters to your code. For many cases, we have much more sophisticated methods (typing math), but still you can enjoy using these symbols in emails for example.

Collection of DejaVu fonts contains nearly all characters listed below.
