Lorem Ipsum

I read a horror story recently where a very offical website was being designed and an employee was testing it by writing silly things. Unfortunately, the site was live. Lorem Ipsum would have prevented that.

We used to use Lorem Ipsum as dummy placemaker text when I was in training. This helped remove distractions when working with the layout. Naturally that was many decades ago when typesetting was a much bigger job than it is today, but you still see accidental Lorem Ipsum now and then when someone forgets to insert the proper text. I see you can now find Lorem Ipsum generators.
