Lorem ipsum

DEFINITION

The first two words of a string of Latin words used as placeholder or dummy text in graphic design layout proposals. Placing this filler text is incongruously known as "greeking." It is quoted fully below.Bill Pugh of New Zealand informed us in July 2001 that much of lorem ipsum comes from Cicero's de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum, a treatise on the theory of ethics written in 45 BCE: "Neque porro quisquam est qui dolorem ipsum quia dolor sit amet, consectetur, adipisci velit..." There is no one who loves pain itself, who seeks after it and wants to have it, simply because it is pain...Much of the entire passage is pseudo-Latin, because although it contains lots of Latin words, they are largely incoherent, and some are utter nonsense ? there's no Latin word lorem, for one thing. But its "words" loosely approximate the frequency with which letters occur in English, which is why at a glance it looks like reasonable text.One source claims this text has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since a printer in the 1500s took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. If this is true, lorem ipsum has survived not only four centuries of letter-by-letter resetting but even the leap into electronic typesetting, essentially unchanged.This text was available for many years on adhesive sheets in various sizes and typefaces as dry transfer graphics. In pre-desktop-publishing days, a designer would cut pieces out with an X-acto knife and stick them on their pages to simulate the look of the final version. When computers came along, some desktop publishing software included it among their tools, so now you see it wherever designers are at work, including all over the Web.Here are some blocks of it: Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipisci velit, sed diem nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut lacreet dolore magna aliguam erat volutpat.
