that the client will get bogged down in the content. The technique is sometimes called
“greeking”—which is somewhat ironic because the text most commonly used for greeking
is in Latin.
That text begins “Lorem ipsum,” and it’s widely used because it approximates standard
English text in word length and letter selection, yet it can’t be mistaken for English. To enter
that iller text in a document, start a new paragraph, type =lorem() , and press Enter. Word
replaces this with three paragraphs of iller text.
If you want more or less iller text, insert two parameters within the parentheses: the
number of paragraphs and the number of sentences in each paragraph. For example, typing
=lorem(2,4) generates this text:
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Maecenas porttitor congue
massa. Fusce posuere, magna sed pulvinar ultricies, purus lectus malesuada libero, sit amet
commodo magna eros quis urna. Nunc viverra imperdiet enim.
Fusce est. Vivamus a tellus. Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et
malesuada fames ac turpis egestas. Proin pharetra nonummy pede.
Use just a single parenthetical parameter, and Word interprets that as the number of
paragraphs you want, with each containing three sentences.
If you’d rather have something that looks more like English, use =rand() or =rand.old() in
the same way.
