Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet...

Here's something interesting...

You must have seen some text like " Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet," on some sites/pages. They seem random and don't mean anything....

What is that? Wikipedia says this:
In publishing and graphic design, lorem ipsum (or simply lipsum) is standard placeholder text used to demonstrate the graphic elements of a document or visual presentation, such as font, typography, and layout. Lipsum also serves as placeholder text in mock-ups of visual design projects before the actual words are inserted into the finished product. When used in this manner, lipsum is also called greeking.

I just wondered what this chunk of text meant. So I googled and found these..

Very interesting explanation to the text.

And even Microsoft documents it XD


Even better, generate in other langauges!
