Small Caps - Macromedia Dreamweaver

I have NO experience with web design or Dreamweaver. I've inherited a web designer who is now using Dreamweaver. I want our healdines in Small Caps. He keeps telling me it can't be done in Dreamweaver. I find that extremely hard to believe. Can anyone give me a suscint explaination I can give to him on how to make small caps...other than going over word by word on every page? Thank you....

    Default Re: Small Caps

    CSS. Here is an example rule:

    h1 {font-variant: small-caps;}

    Works in version 5 and higher browsers.

    Though note that it won't be a true typographic small-caps unless the
    typeface spec'd has a small-caps variant (and few, if any web-friendly fonts
    do).

    Default Re: Small Caps

    true small-caps use fonts that have uppercase as normal, and small uppercase
    where the lowercase glyphs usualy live, the stroke weights are the same
    throughout the font.
    these are fonts which only typographers are likely to own and not standard
    on most machines. They could be used for images though (for headings etc).

    you can use font-variant in css to cheat small-caps, this just scales the
    glyphs, which means the stroke weights will be inconsistent (though at small
    sizes at low res, eg. screen, they will probably be the same).

    so your designer is half right/half not giving you all the options.
