Hello,

The font-synthesis CSS property is a way for authors to opt-out of synthesized font traits such as bold or italics. It seems reasonable to add small-caps to this set. Using "font-synthesis: small-caps;" would specify that, if a small-caps font cannot be found, to use a non-small-caps font without synthesizing smaller, capital, text.

What are your thoughts?

Thanks,
Myles
