# [OS X TeX] Problem with \textsc{}

The problem is that OT1/cmr/bx/sc is not defined, this font does not exit. Change the encoding to T1 for cmr or use any other fonts with /bx/sc face will solve the problem.
So the following is enough and the section text has proper bold weight and small caps. No need to use \usefont.

\documentclass{book}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\begin{document}
\tableofcontents
\chapter{The first}
\section{First section with \textsc{versalitas}}
\end{document}
