What is Lorem Ipsum?

May be you are all familiar with this kind of text -Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit - with many desktop publishing packages and web page editors. What is this Lorem ipsum?

Lorem ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry and has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s. It was popularized in the 1960s with the release of Letterset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Adobe PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?

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.
