Hi everyone!

The best practice is to provide small capitals for all lowercase and upper case letters (including diacritical variants) within the font.

To get to grips with this I have started to compile a spreadsheet which helps alot when grabbing lists of letters for Opentype code.
I haven't got quite this far yet - but if you had 4 columns, (expressed here in rows!) might help...

[1] lowercase, (list continues with diacritics)
[2] Capitals, (list continues with diacritics)
[3] small caps: lowercase alternates, (list continues with diacritics)
[4] small caps: Capitals alternates, (list continues with diacritics)

Once small caps are done - it might take me a day to sort out diacritics
and when that's done the duplicate 'Capital alternate' set should be simple enough to populate.

Good Luck.
