I'd like to have a command to write a word in all small caps of equal size (no initial large capital letter), with a specified central portion in bold.
would produce the output AVER AG E (no spaces)
So far, I have the following command, which makes a word into all small caps of the small size:
The trouble comes when I try to combine these. In the following command,
the middle portion is successfully made bold, but it is not in small caps. Adding a \textsc to the central portion messes up the rest of the command. Any suggestions?
