Because I did not know how amsbook would live with


and "just in case", before trying amsbook, I tried just

\chapter[Base T{\smaller EN}]{Base T{\smaller EN} Place System}

and, to my complete surprise and contrary to my direst expectations,  
it worked perfectly. I suppose that's due to relsize even though  
Companion 2ed does not mention it.

Companion 2ed did mention \mathsmaller (p84) but I had missed  
\textsmaller. And, in fact, it mentioned "Small Caps (faked)"

Ah! That would be occasionally useful but, same as with T1 encoding,  
I am weary of amsbook having repercussions that I would not see right  

And, for what I wanted, everything is now fine.

Grateful regards
