It reminds me of how old German books written in Schwabacher used roman typeface for Latin and other foreign words. In this case, it was intentional, but I have always found it a bit irritating from the aesthetic standpoint. For example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antiqua%E2%80%93Fraktur_dispute...

Similar to how we Americans put foreign words in italics, no? Does that look aesthetically irritating to others?
