All depends what you put into these fonts. Theoretically they should be
available in all styles---in some cases the design may not change.
About small caps: BE CAREFUL, the height of small caps is not x_height,
but more-or-less 1.2 times x_height. Imagine you have the cent symbol, which
contains a lowercase c. Together with small caps, this c will look a little
smaller...not a very happy view. In that case it would be better to have the
c with the same height as small caps.
