"The necessity of formality (or rules) in relation to the use and arrangement of textual material has been the bedrock of typographic study. With information itself, the predictability of rules is essential for accurate decoding and provides a check enabling the identification of the unusual or unpredictable. The conventional is predictable and therefore easy to decode. It follows, therefore, that a typographer who breaks from convention (breaks the rules) knows that, in so doing, the information will be made more difficult to understand and is, presumably therefore, happy with this consequence. Since such actions inevitably ‘interfere’ with the author’s message this activity is often referred to as NOISE." (Source) www.istd.org.uk
