In order to preserve a constant interlinespace (esp. when using a quite small one, in footnotes or such) it can be sometimes necessary to chance the predefined ration of height/depth:

\starttext

  \hbox to \hsize \bgroup \showbaselines \showstruts
      \ruledvtop \bgroup \hsize.45\hsize
          \switchtobodyfont[rm,9pt]\setupinterlinespace[line=9.8pt]
          \begstrut \input tufte \endstrut \endgraf
      \egroup
      \hss
      \ruledvtop \bgroup \hsize.45\hsize
          \switchtobodyfont[rm,9pt]\setupinterlinespace[line=9.8pt,height=.79,depth=.21]
          \begstrut \input tufte \endstrut \endgraf
      \egroup
  \egroup

\stoptext


(The values .79 and .21 in the example are dependent on the actual font used.)
