About

{small-caps} is about the use and provision of small capitals: uppercase (capital) characters set at the same height as lowercase characters (usually 1ex).

Typical questions include the correct use of small caps; which font sets provide small caps and solutions when a chosen or mandated font does not have a small caps font included by default; whether and how to handle special cases such as small caps in mathmode, bold, slanted and italic.

There is a Wikipedia article on small caps.
