What is Lorem Ipsum Generator?

TinyTool's Lorem Ipsum Generator is simply the dummy text generator for the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the standard dummy text in the industry since the 16th century when an unknown printer took a galley of fonts and encoded them to create a typeface. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into the electronic rate while remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularized in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software such as Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.


Why do we use Lorem Ipsum?

It is a long fact that the reader is distracted by the legible content of the page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more or less normal letter layout, as opposed to using "content here, content here", so it looks like readable English. Many DTP packages and website editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem Ipsum will reveal many websites that are still in their infancy. Different versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humor and the like).


Origin of Lorem Ipsum?

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not just random text. It has its roots in classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it more than 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, professor of Latin at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the most obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a passage of Lorem Ipsum, and by sifting through citations of the word in classical literature, he discovered the undoubted source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

A standard piece of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of Cicero's "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.


How to create Lorem Ipsum?

There are many variations of Lorem Ipsum passages available, but most have suffered some form of alteration, injected with humor or random words that don't look the least bit believable. If you are going to use a passage from Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure that nothing is embarrassing hidden in the middle of the text. All Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined blocks as needed, making this the first true generator on the internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words combined with a handful of model sentence structures to produce Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always without repetition, injected humor or unusual words, etc.
