What is a Smallpipe?

Dear Jane, I wonder if I might tempt you to write a general article on the categories of kinds of smallpipes and their differences. The reason I ask this is because I am learning the chanter/pipes and, because I live in a townhouse, buying a set of Great Highland pipes is not an option for me at this stage. I do want to be able to move on to them someday so I personally want standard hole spacing on a smallpipes chanter and in key of A etc....
