        1.  To display text as abstract dots and lines
        in order to give a preview of layout without actually being
        legible.  This is faster than drawing the characters correctly
        which may require scaling or other transformations.  Greeking
        is particularly useful when displaying a reduced image of a
        document where the text would be too small to be legible on
        the display anyway.
        2. {lorem ipsum}.
