What is Lorem Ipsum?

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text used in typesetting and layout before printing. Lorem Ipsum has been the printing industry's standard dummy text since the 1500s, when an anonymous printer pieced together chunks of text to make a specimen book of typefaces. It has not only survived five centuries, but has also adapted to computer office automation, without its content being modified. It was popularized in the 1960s through the sale of Letraset sheets containing passages of Lorem Ipsum, and more recently through its inclusion in text-layout applications, such as Aldus PageMaker.

Why use it?

It has long been known that working with readable and meaningful text is a source of distractions, and distracts from focusing on the layout itself. The advantage of Lorem Ipsum over generic text like 'Text. Of text. Of text.' is that it has a more or less normal distribution of letters, and in any case comparable with that of standard French. Many layout software suites or website builders have made Lorem Ipsum their default dummy text, and a search for 'Lorem Ipsum' will take you to many sites that are still in their development phase. construction. Several versions have appeared over time, sometimes by accident, often intentionally (just to add little winks, even embarrassing sentences).
