Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960 with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desk top publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetu from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discover the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bono rum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

“ Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt moll animid est laborum Sed ut perspiciatis unde omnis iste natus error sit voluptatem accusantium.”

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accom panied by English versions from the 1914 trans lation by H. Rackham.It is a long established fac that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a pagewhen looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters.
