We See the Text 'Lorem Ipsum...' In many Web site Templates. What is that?

In most of the web site/blog templates we see a passage starting with "Lorem Ipsum..". Do you know why is this passage used in most of the web site design templates? If you don't know, read rest of the post.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

So from now onwards, I believe you don't wonder when ever you come across Lorem Ipsum passage.
