it seem like using a dummy text while (web designer) doing mock up for customer (Max Photo) to see and approve the wed design, but in the end, customer never provide the actual write up, so it end up this way.

Cool.. so they are small particles that are complex and difficult to understand?

I prefer to buy from bigger and shops that are easier to understand, no wonder I've never heard of them before..:bsmilie:

Catchlights is correct.

The same block of text appears in other parts of the website as well.

Which is why another 'golden' rule was created for designers: When you want to put in dummy text, never ever use text blocks in the same language.

I fondly remember one CD writing about that ... and when a big presentation was given to Client (Fujifilm USA IIRC), the client looked at the mock-ups, read the text and said it was 'Brilliant!', and instructed the agency to use that exact text! Since client kept the mock-ups, the CD and AD had to vaugely remember what the text said, and laboriously re-write it. The Client wondered why the final copy didn't quite have the same impact as when it was first presented in the mock-ups.
