I want to write a conference paper according to IEEE (latex) format, 
and this involves copying all the bad font choices in IEEEtran.cls 
(Times text, cm math, ughh...). I need smallcaps only for section 
titles, so right now I am doing a local switch to latin modern for the 
section titles. This is what IEEEtran.cls also does. Do you think that 
faking smallcaps from Times will look better? If so, how can I fake 
smallcaps?

Thanks,
Aditya
