It is.

*googles*  Ooh, that's pretty painful as well.  

I would have liked to have gone for a contrast between old-style figures and
constant-height figures in place of the italics and roman, or something like
that; but I wouldn't have been able to distinguish the 6s and the 8s in that
case.  In any event the use of a slanting contrast per se is not a feature
of the script this is based on.
