Sure. And its virtue — a rather narrow lower case — is lost.

University Roman is nice for Valentines Day messages …

Default University Roman letter r

For the curious here is a bit of University Roman, with both the capital and lower case letter r, needed for Jewelers. The hat on the r is distinctive.

I did not have this font, but a web site called Uncle Bear, found with Google, has one for free.
