    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
