The following piece of code set the header (chapter names) of my text (report class) in small caps:


Only problem is that words that are italicized in chapter names are not showed as italicized small caps in the respective headers but instead as "regular" italicized text!

Is there any easy way to fix this? Thanks very much in advance!

As suggested by @Steven B. Segletes in the comment, it is sufficient to replace \textit with \textsl.

  • Note that this is highly font and configuration dependent.
