And none of my favorites additional fonts neither.

EDIT:
With some minor adjustments, it doesn't look bad.

Image 1: Kindle Voyage, AZW3, font Gentium Plus Mali.
Image 2: Apple's iBooks app for Mac, EPUB, font Georgia.
Well, that's because if you want smallcaps, you have to embed the small-caps face of the given font. Text-transform most certainly isn't going to work a large percentage of the time. (And, as we know, not at all on any KF7 device, and probably not Cloud Reader, either.)

As this is the epub subforum I feel the need to mention that Kobo devices do not actually require you to embed a true smallcaps font in order to use it. As long as the smallcaps font has been sideloaded to the device's font directory you can access it via CSS. The method is slightly different for epub and kepub but it can be done for either if you want to make the effort for personal use.

Sure, that's 100% true. :-)
