What is Greeking? - Definition from WhatIs.com
Part of the Computing fundamentals glossary:

Greeking is the use of unreadable dummy text in places reserved for text when prototyping the design or general layout of pages in magazines, books, brochures, advertisements, Web pages, and other visual media. For example, text provided in Greek or Latin is unlikely to be readable by English-speaking design reviewers and is thus less likely to distract them from focusing on their review.
