If small caps is a synonym for uppercase + reduced font size this could be done 
fairly easily assuming english typography leads to fontSize --> 1.1*height(x) 
for small-caps and fontSize-->height(x) for petite-caps. I'm failry sure we 
don't currently support changing the fontStyle in a paragraph though. The 
textTransform style attribute is applied only at the beginning of the paragraph
