When typesetting small capitals in a section name, TeXmacs uses ordinary letters for some characters, rather than their small capital equivalents.

I observed this only for some characters with diacritics, which have all been saved in the “.tm” file in the form of “\<#CODE\>”. This includes, for example, the Esperanto letters ĉ, ĝ, ĥ, ĵ, ŝ, and ŭ. Some other letters, which have not been saved as “\<#CODE\>”, are set correctly. This incudes, for example, the French letters é, û, ë, and œ.

This does not seem to be an issue with fonts. I attach a picture which shows small capitals set incorrectly by TeXmacs, and correctly by LibreOffice, both using the font “Linux Libertine”. However, the issue should be reproducible with any font.

This error is exported to PDF as well.
