[OS X TeX] Bold small caps

Hello all.  I know really little about using different fonts with  
LaTeX, but I would like to have bold small caps.  I did some looking  
through the archives of Comp.text.tex and it appears the easiest way  
to achieve this is to declare


and then use


However, when I do this, the entire PDF looks fuzzy in both TeXShop  
and Preview, but looks fine in Adobe Reader.  If I deactivate  
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc} I lose the bold small caps, but the PDF  
looks sharp in TeXShop and Preview.  What is the cause of this?

Alternative, I read that I could get cmbcsc10.mf from CTAN and  
declare the following in my preamble

<14.4><17.28><20.74><24.88> cmbcsc10}{}

I put the file cmbcsc10.mf in the same folder as my TeX source (I  
thought that would be simplest for now), and the above line in my  
preamble.  However, when I process the file, Metafont does some work  
but I ultimately get some error about a missing font and the bold  
small caps text is missing from the PDF.

So, how can I get bold small caps and a sharp PDF?
