The ``django.contrib.webdesign`` package, part of the `"django.contrib" add-ons`_,
provides various Django helpers that are particularly useful to Web *designers*
(as opposed to developers).

At present, the package contains only a single template tag. If you have ideas
for Web-designer-friendly functionality in Django, please `suggest them`_.

Template tags

To use these template tags, add ``'django.contrib.webdesign'`` to your
``INSTALLED_APPS`` setting. Once you've done that, use
``{% load webdesign %}`` in a template to give your template access to the tags.


Displays random "lorem ipsum" Latin text. This is useful for providing sample
data in templates.


    {% lorem [count] [method] [random] %}

The ``{% lorem %}`` tag can be used with zero, one, two or three arguments.
The arguments are:
