Lorem Ipsum is a pseudo-Latin text used in the printing and typesetting industries. Since the 1500s, when an unknown printer scrambled a galley of type to make a type specimen book, Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text. It has not only survived five centuries, but also the transition to electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It gained popularity in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software such as Aldus PageMaker, which includes Lorem Ipsum versions.

Lorem Ipsum is not just random text, contrary to popular belief. Its origins can be traced back to 45 BC in classical Latin literature, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage and discovered the undeniable source by going through the citations of the word in classical literature. Lorem Ipsum is taken from Cicero's 'de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum' (The Extremes of Good and Evil), which was written in 45 BC. This book is a popular treatise on the theory of ethics during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, 'Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..', comes from a line in section 1.10.32. For those who are interested, the standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of Cicero's 'de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum' are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English translations from H. Rackham's 1914 translation.

It is a well-known fact that a reader will be distracted by a page's readable content when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal letter distribution, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here,' which makes it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will reveal many new web sites. Various versions have emerged over time, sometimes by chance, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
