and hold the 'Enter' key for 3 seconds..

It's just the most commonly known phrase which contains all 26 letters of the alphabet - I suppose it's just to see what fonts look like or something...

Does anyone know any other magical little codes like that??:)

Try this one - it's cool. Go to Google, type in "Weapons of Mass Destruction", hit Search.

Then go to the first one "Cannot find Weapons of Mass Destruction...." and read the error messaage - CAREFULLY.

Somebody has a great sense of humor at Google!

No one at google is responsible for that, 1200. It's a world of bloggers/etc.

Senator Santorum has also been google bombed -- search for him and look at link #3. Not safe for work at all though...

This is courtesy of a columnist named Dan Savage and the Senator likening homosexuality to bestiality.

I understand all 26 letters of the English alphabet thing; but why 212 pages of it?

And I, luckily, only got 1.5 pages in English. I think it has to do wqith teh random number generator statement in the code.

What did the Russian and Swedish versions say?? Do those languuages have similar things where every letter is used??

I think 1200 is right about the (200,99) part of the code = 200.99 pages (although I haven't tried it with a different number and even I am not that bored...opens MS word!!;)).
