Wow, it gave me the theme song to the Mysterious Cities of Gold, possibly my favorite adventure cartoon of all my childhood (yes, surpassing even Voltron).

This reads exactly like the stuff that spambots keep trying to sneak onto my blog as a cover-up for their advertisements. blahblahSartreblahblah GAMBLING LockeblahblahHobbes.

I don't like it. The spacing, capitalization, and punctuation needs help, which is very evident with the english sources.

One point of greek text is to encourage people who are looking at the design to actually look at the design rather than get distracted by "content," i.e. text they can read. Using english text defeats that purpose.

I do like eyeballkid's link. Now that's funny.

Gohlkus, I've lost track of the number of times I've demoed a design to a client, only to have them come back with, "Why is it in Latin?"

Somehow, I think having the Knight Rider intro in there would make it a bit more obvious that it is dummy text.

Crocos, can you e-mail me with details of your Firefox problem? Can't replicate it with FF 1.5b1 on OS X. Thanks.
