makes you wonder if they stuck some evil message in the middle because they know people wont go looking for it among 235 pages of "quick brown foxes"

actually there's method to it. the first parameter is the number of lines, the second parameter is the number of times it occurs in a line. I suspect this was a development tool to get a bunch of text to show up so they could test word wrapping in certain conditions. And they "forgot" to remove it.

www.eeggs.com has tons of cool stuff like this. My friend showed me an easter egg in Excel that was a little flight sim, I think.

yeah Excel 97 had a "flight sim" with Voxel terrain in it. It turned out to be quite fun at times.

Excel 2000 had a 3d racing game.
