Lorem Ipsum? What is that?

As always, I am using Lorem Ipsum generator to create some generic text to work with and to give emphasis on the features or the problem described rather than on text itself. It is easy to find such text generators: just type in Bing or in Google (or in some other favorite search engine of yours) Lorem ipsum and you’ll be done. I usually pick the first one: Lorem Ipsum but you can pick whatever you want or exercise on any text. Text generators are very useful because you can generate exactly the amount of text you want.

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.

Lorem Ipsum is not simply random or dummy text, although we (like to) call it that way. Its roots are more than 2000 years old. The quote is from Lorem Ipsum page where you can read the rest of its history and generate your own text.
