The text that you see is gibberish Latin. Those of you who have advertising or design backgrounds will immediately recognize Lorem Ipsum as placeholder text, to be replaced by the real text later on. When you use placeholder text, it's known as "greeking" in text. The purpose of greeked text is to present layouts or templates without the viewer being distracted by the content or the quality of the text. It just demonstrates how text will be layed out once the real text is inserted. So go ahead ... click in a text area and you'll see an entire text block highlighted, ready for you to replace it with your own text.
