you need to look at the smallcaps code in the current setup, which
David Hull did. this says that if you can find a correctly named file
you take the "a" from that to mean "smallcap A". you could do
something similar for oldstyle numbers.

if i were you i would drop the requirement for oldstyle digits from
your dissertation.. this is going to take you a while to get right,
unless someone else has done the work.

the crude answer is to call the glyphs by number ie instead of 1 do
\char156 or wherever it is. Not much fun!
