What is Lorem Ipsum?

You may have seen the above text in certain electronic documents or designs and wondered to yourself, what does all of this gibberish means?

Lorem Ipsum is dummy text or placeholder text and has been used in the printing and typesetting industry as far back as the 1500s. Lorem Ipsum is used to give the reader an idea of how certain layouts and formats will look with actual readable content in it without using filler content such as "Content here, content here".

Now Lorem Ipsum has been transferred over to the internet and is being used to aid in electronic documentations and designs. Lorem Ipsum has pretty much become the standard for filler content.

How can I get my hands on some Lorem Ipsum?

There are plenty of Lorem Ipsum generators online, as after all, Lorem Ipsum is just scrambled gibberish text. However, most Lorem Ipsum starts with the same line, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit."

One of the more popular Lorem Ipsum generators is www.lipsum.com which allows the user to choose whether or not to start the Lorem Ipsum with "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.." and the user can also change settings such as how many paragraphs or words to generate of Lorem Ipsum.
