Lorem Ipsum

Lorem ipsum is the  filler text used in publishing. It literally translates into Grief Itself and comes from a passage written by the Roman Cicero. The text begins with the phrase Lorem ipsum and the remaining filler chunk used contains a modified version of Cicero’s original passage. The modified version removes, adds, and alters words to make even the Latin nonsensical. The Lorem ipsum is used because it allows one to focus on how a layout will look with the text, instead of focusing on reading the words. It has been used since the 1500s.

A common chunk of Lorem ipsum reads:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.
