Lorem Ipsum

Lorem Ipsum is the language used by type setters to represent actual content (since the 1500s). It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC. Although it does not have meaning it is not "random" text.

I use it to build test data when the content content is important. In fact, true content gets in the way because people tend to read it when they should be looking at it.

More information and tools for generating it at

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.
It is used by two of my favorite applications; iWeb and GenerateData.
