Lorem Ipsum


A blog about Latex, the syntax and how to use it. 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.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Etiam aliquam massa quis mauris sollicitudin commodo venenatis ligula commodo. Vestibulum ante ipsum primis in faucibus orci luctus et ultrices posuere cubilia Curae; Vivamus hendrerit auctor eros, et imperdiet mi ullamcorper nec. Fusce sodales turpis at dui viverra porttitor. Aenean interdum ac justo vitae iaculis. Quisque sed magna eget leo imperdiet dapibus eu vel lacus. Integer malesuada blandit ante, sit amet scelerisque massa rutrum id. Sed ut sagittis erat. Duis viverra risus sed arcu feugiat dictum in id sem.

Aenean egestas diam eu est elementum, et aliquet magna facilisis. Phasellus quis metus metus. Praesent sed consequat ex, non laoreet ligula.

Lorem Ipsum is the most boring placeholder text ever. It’s the go-to standard for dummy copy, but it’s been around for so long that we’re all sick of looking at it.

So, what are some alternatives? Designers are in luck: there are plenty of other dummy copy options readily available to them. A few good ones:

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

The purpose of this blog is to provide an introduction and overview to the LaTeX typesetting program. LaTeX was created in 1985 by Leslie Lamport and has become one of the most important tools in a wide variety of fields, including science, business, education, government, and publishing.

The main idea behind LaTeX is that you are able to focus on writing the content rather than worrying about how it looks. This makes the writing process much more productive and efficient. The typesetting system takes care of formatting your document based on instructions provided within the document itself. This allows for a cleaner separation of content from presentation.
