Usage[编辑]

{{Smallcaps|Your Text}} will display the lowercase part of Your Text as typographical small caps. Your source text is not altered (a copy-paste will give it in its original form), only the way it is displayed. You can most especially use this template for names/surnames disambiguation and all-caps words or pronounceable acronyms.

Diacritics (å, ç, é, ğ, ı, ñ, ø, ş, ü, etc.) are handled. However, because the job is performed by each reader's browser, inconsistencies in CSS implementations can lead to some browsers not converting certain rare diacritics.

Use of this template does not generate any automatic categorization. As with most templates, if the argument contains an = sign, the argument should be prefixed with 1=. And for wikilinks, you need to use piping. There is a parsing problem with MediaWiki which causes unexpected behavior when a template with one style is used within a template with another style.

Technically, the templates wraps the standard <SPAN STYLE="font-variant:small-caps;">Your Text</SPAN>.
