[Tex/LaTex] \textsc does not make small caps


I try to produce small caps for abbreviations like "AM" or "PM". However, this code


The flight to Krakow departs at 6:30 \textsc{AM}.

yields no small caps.

enter image description here

What am I doing wrong?

Best Answer

The font shape commonly known as “small caps” is actually Capitals and small capitals, meaning that uppercase letters are like the standard capital letters in the normal shape, whereas lowercase letters are small capitals.

So you want \textsc{am}, if you want reduced size of the capital letters.
