Ooh a little higher, now a bit to the left, a little more, a little more, just a bit more. Oooh yes, that's the spot!

Heh, is that the standard Latin filler text I wonder? I have seen some mock up websites that my wife does for usability testing, and they often fill up the irrelevant areas with the same piece of Latin text. I will have to ask her if this is the same bit of text.

I believe that's exactly what it is (Latin filler text). But why use a (?) dead language like Latin?

Lorem ipsum is the standard text used as filler by graphic designers and publishers. It's not truly Latin, but scrambled nonsense that is based on Latin. It's useful because it has variety of word length, so you get a more realistic idea of what the final version of a product will look like.

You can read more about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lorem_ipsum
