# Make section font all caps

I am using the following code with sectsty to make all sections use small caps:

\sectionfont{\sc}


However, I want them all typesetted in lowercase, but the following does not work:

\sectionfont{\MakeLowercase\sc}

Why not use \MakeUppercase? –  Seamus Aug 24 '11 at 13:00

Since \MakeLowercase takes an argument, try flipping around your macros:
\sectionfont{\sc\MakeLowercase}

You should also use \scshape instead of \sc.
Thank you. Any special reason to use \scshape instead of \sc ? –  Hugo S Ferreira Aug 19 '11 at 0:36
Using the old TeX-style commands to switch fonts doesn't support LaTeX's new font selection scheme (NFSS). So using \sc would cancel out \bf, for instance, whereas \scshape would be applied in addition to a \bfseries (i.e., you can apply multiple font commands simultaneously). Compare with the following code: {\bf bold \it italics} {\bfseries bold \itshape and italics}. –  godbyk Aug 19 '11 at 0:40
