There is a “Lorem ipsum” generator built right into Emmet, which we enable on CodePen by default. So if you type lorem-Tab, you’ll get some.

Good to know: you can customize how much you get of it by adding numbers. lorem10 is just 10 words of filler text. lorem1000 is 1,000 words of filler text.

Lorem ipsum is just gibberish (it’s not really Latin!) and the point of it is putting placeholder text in place when it doesn’t really matter what it says, you’re just designing something. If it’s going to be real text at some point, it’s probably a good idea to get your hands on that real text, but alas, sometimes placeholder copy will do.

To avoid any text weirdness, I’m wrapping the text in curly braces and escaping the quotes.

And then, KAPOW, we got options.
