Dummy Text For Dummies

The Dummy Text Generator is a new(ish) luxury for web designers. For ages, people have had to put ‘Lorem Ipsum‘ all over their web designs in order to ensure the client is not distracted by the text on the page. Now, there is a choice!

The quick, brown fox jumps over a lazy dog. DJs flock by when MTV ax quiz prog. Junk MTV quiz graced by fox whelps. Bawds jog, flick quartz, vex nymphs. Waltz, bad nymph, for quick jigs vex!

The very, very last thing that any web designer or developer should ever think of putting into a draft webpage design or layout is text that may relate to the actual client. As soon as they see text that they may think is even slightly relevant to their business, their eyes are immediately diverted from the layout or design, and you’ve lost their attention.
