blindtext – Producing 'blind' text for testing

The package provides the commands \blindtext and \Blindtext for creating ‘blind’ text useful in testing new classes and packages, and \blinddocument, \Blinddocument for creating an entire random document with sections, lists, mathematics, etc.

The package supports three languages, english, (n)german and latin; the latin option provides a short “lorem ipsum” (for a fuller lorem ipsum text, see the lipsum package).
