Gesperrt is the term used to refer to s p a c e d o u t text.
This was a typesetting technique used to emphasize a piece of text in older German (and some Italian and other languages) books. Thus, g e s p e r r t served pretty much the same purpose that italics and bold do today.
In the example below, the English phrase "Signal Post Hill" is typeset gesperrt to emphasize it as a kind of section heading in this predominantly-German work.
