Lorem Ipsum

What the? Lorem Ipsum you too man…

Actually, Lorem Ipsum is the name of the dummy text that is most commonly used for layout previews/examples. It’s used to show what a webpage/pamphlet/book/etc would look like populated with text. The guys who do this for a living know that the reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout.

So instead they use a passage of classical Latin literature written in 45 BC. The really cool thing (in my opinion) is that it has been in use since the 1500’s!

Here is a page devoted to it. Also has a generator.
