Italic small caps in Times Roman for LaTeX

Standard LaTeX does not provide italic small caps. For example,

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{times}
\begin{document}
\textsc{Hello \emph{world}}

\textsc{Hello \emph{\textbf{world}}}
\end{document}

produces:

Hello World italic but not small caps

The times-itsc package provided here fixes this, to give:

Hello World italic small caps

To use the package

  1. Unpack this tar.gz file in your texmf hierarchy.
  2. Run mktexlsr or texhash.
  3. Then use the times-itsc package in place of the times package.

To generate the files

The files are generated using fontinst; to generate the files:

  1. Clone this git repository.
  2. Type make.
  3. If this doesn't work, make sure you have ptmr8a.afm is part of your TeX distribution. On Debian or Ubuntu, installing the texlive-fonts-recommended should provide this.

Acknowledgements

Thanks to:

  • Daniel Ashbrook for helpful comments on an earlier version of the package.
  • jjulino for implementing bold italic small caps.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
