Lorem Ipsum - All the facts - Lipsum generator

Lorem Ipsum - All the facts - Lipsum generator

Need filler text for a layout or example? Need 5 paragraphs of text? Or 350 words? Or maybe 14 bullet points? Then you need the Lorem Ipsum generator.

Why should you care about auto generated text?

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making 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 uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

(Discovered while looking for sites that would create place holder text for my ITD 210 students so they could play with CSS.)
