Lorem ipsum

In publishing and graphic design, lorem ipsum is a filler text commonly used to demonstrate the graphic elements of a document or visual presentation. The lorem ipsum text is typically a scrambled section of De finibus bonorum et malorum, a 1st-century BC Latin text by Cicero, with words altered, added, and removed to make it nonsensical, improper Latin.

Its use as a filler text was introduced in the 1950s in the form of Letraset typeface specimens, one of which is reproduced at Lorem ipsum (Letraset).
