The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog

Anyone who has ever learned to type (I think I learned from the 1890 book, when it was still relatively new) will know the significance of "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog", an English-language pangram (a phrase that contains all of the letters of the alphabet). Well, this shows it was not just "made-up" for the purpose. Brown foxes do jump over lazy dogs! Smile
