Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the prin­ting and type­set­ting indu­stry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scram­bled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centu­ries, but also the leap into elec­tronic type­set­ting, remai­ning essen­ti­ally unchanged. It was popu­la­rised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets contai­ning Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publis­hing soft­ware like Aldus PageMaker inclu­ding versions of Lorem Ipsum.

It is a long esta­blished fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distri­bu­tion of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publis­hing pack­ages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, some­times by acci­dent, some­times on purpose (injected humour and the like)

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of clas­sical Latin lite­ra­ture from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consec­tetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in clas­sical lite­ra­ture, disco­vered the undoub­table source.

Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a trea­tise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

There are many vari­a­tions of passages of Lorem Ipsum avai­lable, but the majo­rity have suffered alte­ra­tion in some form, by injected humour, or rando­mised words which don’t look even slightly belie­vable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embar­ras­sing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum gene­ra­tors on the Internet tend to repeat prede­fined chunks as neces­sary, making this the first true gene­rator on the Internet. It uses a dicti­o­nary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of sentence struc­tures, to gene­rate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable.
