# “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 scaleboxes and then MakeUppercases all of the lower case letters in its argument. Is that possible?
