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 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop 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, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage,
and going through the cites of the word in classical
literature, discovered the undoubtable
source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33
of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil)
by Cicero, written in 45 BC.
