Web page content / Dummy web text (Lorem Ipsum)

Whilst working on implementing a new design for the Esendex site I wanted to see what the layout looked like with content in place. I also wanted to use text that didn't distract me or other colleagues working on the design (i.e. not repeat 'hello world' 100 times), so I needed to make it look like readable English but not be :) I wondered if there was some sort of latin text generator similar to the dummy text used in the printing and type-setting industry? Google took me straight to a great site called www.lipsum.com, which is apparently the first correct content generator of this type on the web. Very handy :)
