Lorem Ipsum

I was working on a new website today, and as is often the case, I did not have the copy for any of the pages yet. I needed to fill a few pages with some text so I could simply get the pages to the point that they were ready for the clients copy. To my rescue once again was the lorem ipsum generator. I usually use some lorem ipsum as placeholder text in web designs and in web page templates. It allows me to focus on the look of the site so I can tweak the little things that need done. In the end I am sure it has saved me considerable amount of time on websites, because when I do get the clients actual copy I can simple insert their copy and it will look exactly like it is suppose to.

If you want to read more about the history of lorem ipsum check out the article at Wikipedia. It has some great information on the history and use of lorem ipsum.
