Thank you for answering my million questions. I wish we could use an indicator (symbol, word, and passage) strictly for small caps--vs. a subjective opinion. I understand your answer but if we used a small cap indicator, there would be no need to ascertain "which emphasis to retain and which is not necessary." It seems as though that is undermining the decision of the print copy editor who wanted to show the text in small caps, period.
Looking through the UEB symbols list, I'm amazed at the effort to show the braille reader as much as possible of the print copy. For example, there are indicators for the size and direction of arrows. Yet for as something as common as small caps, there is no simple indicator.
