Font-variant

Whether or not text should be displayed in a small-caps font.

Syntax
      font-variant: normal | small-caps | inherit ;

normal - Normal text.
small-caps - Display with small capitals.
inherit - Inherit from the parent element.

Examples:
h1 { font-variant: small-caps; }
#ss64id { font-variant: small-caps
; }
.ss64class { font-variant: small-caps; }

Try it:

A common misconception – unfortunately reinforced by CSS – is that a small cap is just a regular capital letter scaled uniformly down to a smaller size. A proper typographical small cap is a carefully crafted glyph that differs in significant ways from a simple scaling down of a capital letter.
