Graphics, User Interfaces Every now and then on OSNews, we discuss typography and language. Despite the fact that many think it's not relevant for computing - it most certainly is. Whether you're browsing the web, reading email, or chatting over IM - the most common element on your computer screen is typography. Today, I want to discuss something we barely have in my native language: small capitals.

small-caps aren't really used inline that often in web design, where it is used is in headers or subheaders of things. In fact, I can't think of a single instance of small-caps being used for emphasis in a non academic page, and it is pretty rare to see it at all.

Is there any specific examples you have of small-caps being abused on the web?
