Sorry, I do not see any problem there. 

The Google image in the screencap may look a bit out of place
stylistically, but that does not constitute a problem. If an author
wants to prevent such minor stylistic clashes with a potential user
stylesheet then they should avoid images of text (this is a good idea
regardless), or they can use an alpha transparent background for the
image with a contrasting colour fringe around the lettering (like
shadows) to ensure legibility of the text in the image against an
arbitrary background colour.
