Small caps are showing the wrong size

Hello everyone!

I am setting text-transformation to make my caps smaller. However, it transformed my caps into lowercase letters.

abbr { font-family: 'Alegreya Sans SC', 'Alegreya Sans', Verdana, Tahoma, sans-serif; text-transform: uppercase; }

I tried to change the value to uppercase for my text-transformation but it won't work.

Thank you in advance

The setting shown here would not transform your caps into lowercase letters, but it would if it was set to lowercase instead of uppercase.

But the text-transform property in CSS has no "small caps" setting. Perhaps you are thinking of this:

font-variant: small-caps;

For more information, see the MDN pages for text-transform and font-variant.
