Has anyone found a font that will allow the copying of 'the LORD' (ORD being in small caps) without the paste operation converting it to 'the Lord'?

I have tried this from the NIV and ESV with no success when pasting into Pages.

The above is a link to a thread on the subject.  I am using windows and noticed the same problem.  I emailed Melissa at Logos the screenshots and she let me know that it was because my default word processor font was turned to Arial.  She suggested using another font (see above thread).

Hope this helps.

A little additional font-background.

Small caps are supposed to be separate characters in a font scheme. However, since not all fonts have these extra characters sometimes Word Processors, to achieve the affect will scale down the regular capital characters. This results in some less-than-desirable typeface issues. If you are pasting into a font without small cap characters you will lose them. I did a quick search and it looks like this site has a list of the common fonts that support true small caps.

I know it's been a while since you posted this, but I have had the same problem. I called in and they looked at it online for over an hour and are going to work on it. Blessings.
