I'm fond of smallcaps, but I don't like the faked version, not even the
OpenType smallcaps.  Whenever possible, I always advise getting a
designer-cut smallcaps font.

That said, and against my better judgment, I'm adding .SMALLCAPS to
mom in the next release (within a couple of weeks).  It's similar
to Ted's macro, but allows for changing the size of smallcaps
(as a user-settable percentage of the current point size) as well
as their weight (by "fattening" them a user-settable percentage of
their point size).
