Is it possible to do smallcaps in questions and answers?
I recently quoted a dictionary definition in EL&U which ended with an example and citation along the lines of:
... *Now you sit there like a stunned mullet. - BARRY DICKENS, 1985.
In the actual dictionary, the
BARRY DICKENS, 1985 bit was in smallcaps and I wanted to make it as close as possible, given the likely pedantic nature of EL&U people :-). And, as you can see, the capitalised full-size form sticks out like a sort thumb.
Now, I worked around it by putting
sup tags around the text as follows:
*Now you sit there like a stunned mullet. - BARRY DICKENS, 1985.
That's not too bad but it elevates the text somewhat and I was just wondering whether there was a way to get the same effect but with the baseline lined up with the other text.
I have looked through the markdown help but found nothing to do with fonts, which is where I'd expect that to be.
