# Small Caps Computer Modern Unicode problem

I want to use CMU with xelatex for my docs. Everything is working fine except small caps for greek letters. My input (code)

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{xunicode,fontspec,xltxtra}
\usepackage{xgreek}
\defaultfontfeatures{Mapping=tex-text,Scale=MatchLowercase}
\setmainfont{CMU Serif}
\setromanfont{CMU Serif}
\setsansfont{CMU Sans Serif}
\setmonofont{CMU Typewriter Text}
\begin{document}
\noindent This is a greek text Ακολουθεί ελληνικό κείμενο\\
\textit{This is a greek text Ακολουθεί ελληνικό κείμενο}\\
\textsc{This is a greek text Ακολουθεί ελληνικό κείμενο}
\end{document}


The CMU news mention that Added Greek small capitals to CMUSerif-Roman, CMUSerif-Bold, CMUSansSerif, CMUSansSerif-Bold, CMUTypewriter-Regular

I cannot figure what i am doing wrong.

• There has never been a small caps Greek font, I'm afraid. Are small caps actually used for Greek? – egreg Nov 24 '13 at 17:06
• From cm-unicode.sourceforge.net/news.html CM Unicode 0.6.2 (March 02 2007) ... Added Greek small capitals to CMUSerif-Roman, CMUSerif-Bold, CMUSansSerif, CMUSansSerif-Bold, CMUTypewriter-Regular .... – Yiannis Kiouvrekis Nov 24 '13 at 17:12
• I guess that the annotation simply means that something (the normal lowercase glyphs) is printed in a small caps context. There's no glyph named alpha.sc in the glyph list for the fonts. – egreg Nov 24 '13 at 17:21
• I've found a discussion in Typophile.com. – egreg Nov 24 '13 at 17:31

The glyph list in the fonts shows no alpha.sc nor other Greek lowercase letters. There are instead the glyphs for uppercase Greek letters. Probably the annotation in the Changelog means that the fonts have been adjusted in order to print something in a small caps context.
