Yes, I agree that that's fine enough to get them.  I just want them  
everywhere instead of the other 'capital' figures.  In particular, I  
want them in page numbers, citations, etc.... I'm greedy that way.   
Is there a general package that someone has written that does this?  
(Replace figures by smallcap variants?)  I know that some font  
packages (like the fs500 package, for using the FontSite 500 fonts)  
have an osf switch.
