Small caps


Encloses capitalized words with three or characters more within <abbr> </abbr> tags, so that abbr tags could be styled to display small caps—for typographical effect.


  1. Upload small-caps.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ folder.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. The following styling is now part of the plugin code:

abbr { text-transform:lowercase; font-variant:small-caps; }

Optional: If you prefer to custom-style the appearance of small caps, then, you may comment lines 27 through to 33 in the plugin file small-caps.php, and then add the custom styling in your theme’s style.css file.


Does this plugin modify the database?

No, it does not. So it’s safe.
