February 05, 2009, at 08:36 AM by OtherMichael - more info, brief review of sites.
Changed lines 3-5 from:
http://www.lipsum.com/ - generator, plus plugins for perl, firefox, etc.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lorem_ipsum
http://www.straightdope.com/columns/010216.html - ''What does the filler text "lorem ipsum" mean?
''
to:
Wikipedia:Lorem_ipsum
->''lorem ipsum'' is common placeholder text used to demonstrate the graphic elements of a document or visual presentation, such as font, typography, and layout. Substituting dummy text for meaningful content is called "greeking", as in, "to greek the text".

''What does the filler text "lorem ipsum" mean?'']]

There is a plethora of sites using the address and ... hoping to profit off graphic designers, desperate for filler-text?!???

http://www.lipsum.com/ - aka "lorem ipsum - all the facts": generator, plus plugins for perl, firefox, etc. Visually busy
http://www.loremipsum.net/ - a small personal site dating back to the mid-90s. Has two small ads on it. Minimal and well-designed.
http://www.lorem-ipsum.info/ - Seems to be promo-piece for a design agency, but layout is broken in my Firefox. Text is pale blue on white and hard to read. THERE IS A =BLINK= TAG  (well, animated GIF with blinking text. same thing) that points to their [[http://www.lorem-ipsum.info/generator3|lorem ipsum generator]] with lots of options, including different languages.
