I don't see any obvious options for small caps in Pages, either under styles or text formatting. Do I need a special font, or does Pages have small caps capability at all?

Maybe this link to the documentation of Pages helps you out?

  1. Choose Format > Font > Capitalization and choose an option from the submenu.
  2. Choose Small Caps to change the text to smaller capitals with larger capitals for uppercase letters

    It's also buried on the inspector window - but knowing the menu path is faster in most cases than navigating amongst the tabs of that control element. – bmike May 3 '12 at 13:37

    Note, however, that this fakes small-caps (scaled down versions of the full caps that look rather anemic). To get proper small-caps, you had to open the Font panel (cmd-t) and then open the Font Panel Actions (small sprocket on the bottom left) and select typography. This used to allow you to use the real small-caps provided with OTF fonts, but it has been broken for about a year now... has Apple abandoned high-quality typography? (See discussions.apple.com/thread/4403525 for some details.) – mforbes Mar 17 '13 at 19:23
