    You are aware that the Nazis have forbidden the use of Fraktur (in
    1941), calling them `Schwabacher Judenletter'? This is probably the
    main reason Fraktur is out of use today in Germany: After the war,
    most of the printing machines lacked Fraktur fonts, and this fact
    simply became the standard...
