In case anyone else is curious, here's an answer from www.lipsum.com:

"It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable
content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum
is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to
using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English."

In other words, it gives all the visual benefits of actual content without
having to come up with actual content. ; )
