# “Faking” small caps for a font installed from .ttf files

Say I have installed a font using something like `otfinst.py` or similar. And say this font doesn't have a small caps version. Is there an easy way to fake small caps in pdflatex? At the moment, text that is supposed to be `sc` just shows up as regular text...

For a one off, I can fake small caps like this (requires `graphicx`):

``````F\scalebox{0.7}{\MakeUppercase{ake small caps}}
``````

And I guess what I'd like is a macro that does that. That is, it `scalebox`es and then `MakeUppercase`s all of the lower case letters in its argument. Is that possible?
