    This definitely has a use, but I'd stress to have real copy as early as possible. Check Getting Real by 37Signals, here's a note snippet from it:

    Use real text vs. Lorem ipsum ideally (text is not a shape, it is valuable information to read). Real copy helps determine how long certain fields should be, how expand/contracts should look, and what your app truly looks like.

      True, but good luck writing an entire magazine spread just to "block out what it looks like". That was one of the benefits of using lorem ipsum in the first place—it provided a general word count easily and consistently for editorial layouts.

      I usually produce the content before I start the design. So 95% of the times i use real text. But as I said above.

      It can be used with generic designs.
