I'm all in favor for  JUL 24 2000

I'm all in favor for some fresh text for greeking copy in designs, but among the reasons the lorem ipsum text is used is so that people viewing the design don't get caught up reading the copy. I used to write my own dummy copy for the designs I made - as a creative exercise - but gave up after being burned several times by the client focusing on the copy and not on the design.
