What is Lorem Ipsum?


A rare foreign language?  Nonsensical text?

Have you ever visited a website and encountered text that appeared to be complete gibberish?  What may seem like random words composed of randomly placed letters is actually a sophisticated snippet of text used as a place holder until more relevant content can be entered.

“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.

…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…”  Source:

Example of Lorem Ipsum text:
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Ut a rhoncus neque. Integer egestas consequat metus, nec faucibus nunc iaculis sit amet. Ut tempor posuere egestas. Fusce sit amet neque a est ornare eleifend. In quis risus eget lectus pulvinar vestibulum at non neque. Aenean ac est in tellus pulvinar congue.
