You probably don't notice because it's the right space for uppercase letters, but everything scaled down to 75%. With true smallcaps, however, only the letters are scaled down (sort of), but spaces remain the normal size. It's probably more noticeable in a text with mixed normal and smallcaps pieces. Make it more extreme:

Code:
<span style="font-size:20%">THIS IS A TEST</span>
<span style="font-size:20%">THIS</span> <span style="font-size:20%">IS</span> <span style="font-size:20%">A</span> <span style="font-size:20%">TEST</span>
and you'll see the difference in spacing.
