Lorem Ipsum

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Proin id egestas leo. Nunc nec convallis mauris. Sed velit nisi, ornare in tellus nec, mattis rhoncus arcu. Duis consequat velit tellus, sed hendrerit erat viverra id. Nam in sodales mi. Aliquam venenatis dolor.

That first paragraph shows you what this tool does. The Lorem Ipsum site is an oldie I’ve used for who knows how many years, which is almost poetic when one considers its purpose: to spit out dummy text based on your specs (word count, paragraph count, list lines, etc.). It uses the “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet…” dummy text favored by the printing and typesetting industry, a standard in the industry since the 1500s.

Use it for your design mockups, of course, whether you’re designing books or websites or whatever, so you can better visualize what the design will look like in real life use, proper word counts and all. By the way, for the first paragraph, I told Lorem Ipsum to pump out 42 words.
