It’s too expensive if I don’t like it.. I wouldn’t mind having a “demo” version of a font to see if I like it and then pay for it when if I use it..

MyFonts has the same font Here. You can try typing stuff in at the top to see what it looks like (The small caps version is there if you scroll down). Hope that helps!

Also Goudy Forum Pro is one of my favorites and it’s $8 cheaper!

If your using Adobe Illustrator, you can use the character pallete to make small caps out of any font, just FYI :).

In Microsoft Word you can make small caps out of any font as well! If you go to the font menu (press Ctrl+D) and click the box next to small caps, it will make anything small caps!! I LOVE small caps!!

OK, I have to weigh in on this due to my user name. 🙂
Technically, yes, most progams will “small cap” any font, but the proportion and stroke weight are not really correct. A font with a proper small cap set will look MUCH better. (This link has a good brief explanation: http://nitens.org/taraborelli/latex#smallcaps)
Professional fonts in the Open Type format will usually have proper small caps in their extended glyph set. Free fonts may or may not … but at least with the free ones you can try them out and see how they look without spending anything.
I usually buy my fonts from MyFonts.com … they have a HUGE selection, and the prices are decent. There is a “sample text” feature that lets you type in whatever you want … I found this useful to see how our names would look in that particular font.

If you want the link for this font – here it is – just make sure you click the green download button in the middle of the page and not the large download options!
