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.
