Loremipsum Macro

Add the Loremipsum macro to a page to display a paragraphs of Lorem ipsum placeholder text. 

This is a legacy macro, and is mostly used for demonstrating how a particular page layout or format might look with content. The text is deliberately non-meaningful so that it does not influence the viewer's perception of the page arrangement or design.
