Lorem ipsum

"Lorem ipsum" is Latin, slightly jumbled, the remnants of a passage from Cicero's de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum, which begins Neque porro quisquam est qui dolorem ipsum quia dolor sit amet, consectetur, adipisci velit... [There is no one who loves pain itself, who seeks after it and wants to have it, simply because it is pain.]. The book, written in 45 BC, is a treatise on the theory of ethics, and was very popular during the Renaissance.

This snippet of text has been the standard dummy text of the printing industry since the 1500s, when an unknown printer used it in the making of a type specimen book. Today it is often found in desktop publishing programs and the like. It is also used as the default model text in some webpage editors, and a search for "lorem ipsum" will uncover many webpages yet in their infancy.

If you plan to use the text for modeling purposes or whatever, be sure to get an accurate copy, or at least one that won't embarrass you. There are several different versions on the Net. The text has evolved over the years, sometimes by accident (typos) and sometimes on purpose (word substitutions, injected humor). Some are really very funny, but you probably wouldn't want to accidentally integrate them with your website!

Li Europan lingues es membres del sam familie. Lor separat existentie es un myth. Por scientie, musica, sport etc., li tot Europa usa li sam vocabularium. Li lingues differe solmen in li grammatica, li pronunciation e li plu commun vocabules. Omnicos directe al desirabilitá de un nov lingua franca: on refusa continuar payar custosi traductores. It solmen va esser necessi far uniform grammatica, pronunciation e plu sommun paroles.

Ma quande lingues coalesce, li grammatica del resultant lingue es plu simplic e regulari quam ti del coalescent lingues. Li nov lingua franca va esser plu simplic e regulari quam li existent Europan lingues. It va esser tam simplic quam Occidental: in fact, it va esser Occidental. A un Angleso it va semblar un simplificat Angles, quam un skeptic Cambridge amico dit me que Occidental es.
