Lorem Ipsum is fish text often used in print and web design. Lorem Ipsum has been the standard "fish" for Latin texts since the early 16th century. At the time, an unnamed printer created a large collection of font sizes and shapes, using Lorem Ipsum to print samples. Lorem Ipsum not only successfully survived five centuries without noticeable changes, but also stepped into electronic design. It has been popularized in modern times by the publication of Letraset sheets with Lorem Ipsum patterns in the 60s and, more recently, by layout programs such as Aldus PageMaker, which use Lorem Ipsum in their templates.

It has long been found that when evaluating design and composition, readable text makes it difficult to concentrate. Lorem Ipsum is used because it provides more or less standard pattern padding, as well as the actual distribution of letters and spaces in paragraphs, which is not obtained by simply duplicating "Here is your text.. Here is your text.. Here is your text.." Many programs Web page layouts and HTML editors use Lorem Ipsum as their default text, so a search for the keyword "lorem ipsum" immediately reveals how many web pages are still waiting to be born. Over the years, the text of Lorem Ipsum has received many versions. Some versions appeared by mistake, some intentionally (for example, humorous versions).

Many people think that Lorem Ipsum is a pseudo-Latin set of words taken from the ceiling, but this is not entirely true. Its roots go back to a single fragment of classical Latin from 45 AD, that is, more than two millennia ago. Richard McClintock, professor of Latin at Hampden-Sydney College, Virginia, took one of the strangest words in Lorem Ipsum, "consectetur", and searched for it in classical Latin literature. As a result, he found the undeniable original source of Lorem Ipsum in sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of the book "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" ("On the limits of good and evil"), written by Cicero in 45 AD. This treatise on the theory of ethics was very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from one of the lines in section 1.10.32
