stealcaps – “Steal” small capitals

This little package is mainly meant to be used when there is a (TrueType or OpenType) font that does not provide real small capitals. As a workaround, this package helps to borrow, or “steal”, the small capitals from another font. This might also be useful in the rare case that someone does not like the present small capitals, and wants to change them, or likes those from another font better.

To achieve the borrowing, one only needs to load the package and specify the name of the target font via the from option.

Package dependencies: pgfopts, iftex, fontspec.
