In a tex document I have \textsc{exp3} and I would like to make the 3 a small caps number. Is it possible ?

Here is my code, which uses ACM template.


\renewcommand\footnotetextauthorsaddresses[1]{}% \pagestyle{plain} 


\usepackage{booktabs} % For formal tables


\title{My Title} 




This is my file. This is an algorithm, called \textsc{exp3}. Numbers like $1,2,3$ are not small caps. 


See the figure below (the first set of numbers; from left to right):

  • What exactly is a "small caps number"? Do you happen to have an example image of what you want? – Raven Dec 19 '18 at 16:10

    I added a figure. – zdm Dec 19 '18 at 16:12
  • Do you want all numbers in the smallcaps font to be oldstyle, or just the particular example you give? – Paul Stanley Dec 19 '18 at 16:14
  • Yes that's fine too. – zdm Dec 19 '18 at 16:15

    See tex.stackexchange.com/q/185229 Oldstyle numbers aren’t small cap numbers, and very few fonts have the latter. – Thérèse Dec 19 '18 at 16:25
