    Small caps will often be slightly or significantly larger than the x-height of the font. Some typefaces have additional small caps which match the x-height and they are called petite caps. Both types can be access through distinct OpenType features: SMCP (small caps) and PCAP (petite capitals).

     

    French: petites capitales
    German: kleine Kapitälchen
    Portuguese: Versalete
    Spanish: Versalitas
