Lorem Ipsum

What is Lorem Ipsum?

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.

Why do we use it?

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).

An example of a generated Lorem Ipsum, 2 paragraphs:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Duis facilisis, dolor vitae vehicula suscipit, augue tortor tristique dolor, non hendrerit enim felis quis augue. Morbi id urna. Donec enim massa, dapibus a, dictum sit amet, ornare in, arcu. Quisque rhoncus, neque eu interdum varius, nunc nulla tincidunt libero, quis tincidunt eros orci id turpis. Cras mollis, lectus eget viverra dapibus, elit neque volutpat orci, nec ullamcorper nibh leo a eros. Donec venenatis euismod mi. Cras venenatis, turpis id laoreet euismod, ligula neque bibendum risus, eu rhoncus justo urna quis neque. Duis erat. Sed pellentesque, justo sit amet blandit tincidunt, nisl mauris tincidunt quam, ut sollicitudin nibh ligula quis est. Cras tempor luctus dui. Maecenas eleifend ultrices justo. Ut sit amet metus. Curabitur vitae orci. Cras congue tristique nunc. Vestibulum ac sapien.

Vestibulum ante ipsum primis in faucibus orci luctus et ultrices posuere cubilia Curae; Proin et enim. Praesent tristique, ante vitae pretium mattis, felis est ultrices velit, vitae venenatis leo purus eu diam. Nunc lectus. In vitae dolor. Aliquam euismod consectetur enim. Praesent ut dolor ac enim molestie rutrum. Mauris vel libero ac nisl porttitor consectetur. Pellentesque a diam. Fusce ornare ante sed mauris. Quisque erat. Curabitur et urna ac arcu ultricies eleifend. Nullam placerat augue vestibulum velit bibendum rutrum. Suspendisse et odio. PhMugasellus consequat nulla eget libero. Curabitur ut enim nec enim posuere luctus. Donec eleifend est ullamcorper mauris. Vivamus tempus, mauris et laoreet pharetra, arcu nisl elementum nulla, sed hendrerit tortor risus ac nulla. In cursus erat sit amet lectus.

 They have even got an online shop that sells mugs, coasters, clocks and mouse matts.

I found this tie on http://www.muazo.co.uk/lg_images/Lorem_Ipsum%5B2%5D.jpg and this cuff on http://www.swiss-miss.com/2006/11/lorem_ipsum_cuf.html.
