Lorum Ispum

Have you ever landed at a website filled with Latin-looking gibberish that started “Lorem ipsum?” “Lorum ipsum” is dummy text that has been used in the printing and typesetting industries since the sixteenth century when an unknown printer scrambled some type to make a type sample book. It is often used at web design sites to show off website templates, so that readers are not distracted by real content, or by the repetition of a phrase such as “content here, content here.” To learn more, or to generate some “lorum ispum” for your own use, visit Lipsum.com.
