[Q] setting the xheight

one of my users is unfortunate enough to have to cope with a rather
demanding publishing standard, which has strict demands on the x-height
of the Times Roman SmallCaps. I've volunteered to try and find out how
to set up a special virtual smallcaps font for this particular
publication, and wonder -
- could this be done just by changing font dimensions from TeX
instead - there are registers that deal with certain aspects of
font sizes and proportions, right?
- if I _have_ to use fontinst to create an alternative virtual
smallcaps font, are there any snags I should be advised to be
aware of? is this covered in the manual?
