A better Lorem Ipsum?

For those like me who use “Lorem Ipsum” generators (Latin language dummy text generator) such as lipsum.com to create mockups you will be happy to know that an alternative now exist: Blokk is a font for quick mock-ups and wireframing for clients who do not understand latin (pretty much everyone!).

Twitter Bootstrap: Responsive CSS does not work on mobile devices
