Spoiler tag not working

It seems the spoiler tag is not working. OR is it just me? I'm using Firefox on Mac, and also tried safari.

Is it just the fact that Latin is leaking out of my brain, or are some of those endings/words wrong?

It's garbage as Latin - it's just standard printer's "filler" text.

It actually has a very interesting history. See:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lorem_ipsum

It's used by printers in situations where you want to show a client the "graphical layout" of a page without being sidetracked by the actual text being shown. It's a (very) corrupted form of an extract from Cicero's philosophical treatise "De Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" ("On the Purposes of Good and Evil") and is used because it "looks like" typical English in terms of the word lengths and spacings. It's been used for centuries for that purpose, but it was only very recently that it was discovered where it actually came from.

With that post, I see an error "this.parentNode.parentNode.getElementsByTagName(" div")[1].getElementsByTagName("div")[0] is undefined" in FireBug, but I've not tried to follow it further!
