The first line of « lorem ipsum », « Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet… », can be read out of a line from section 1.10.32. This book was very popular during the Renaissance and it is a treatise on the theory of ethics. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source.

« Lorem ipsum » is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. It has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s. It has been popularised « recently » with desktop publishing software and in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing « lorem ipsum » passages.

Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for « lorem ipsum » will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text.
