Fonts like Trajan?

I'm looking for a font a lot like Trajan, but with lowercase letters included. Any ideas? Free or low-cost is good, but not required. This is for a website - display, not text.

Try John Studden's New Trajan for only $27.50.

I personally like Sabon.

Frederic Goudy's Hadriano is nice for this, as is Weiss.

What features of Trajan do you like? Is it just the serifs? Is it the Roman feel/style?

If it's the former, there are thousands of serif fonts, plenty fancy enough for display. If it's the latter, then by including lowercase letters, you'll be working against the style of the font.

If you can tell us why you want something Trajanish, we may be able to help better.

I second Weiss. It goes well with Trajan.
