Text Block

Overview
The text block component allows a text (such as a written paragraph) to be inserted into a placeholder.  This text can then be edited via the Sitecore Rich Text Editor.
Example

A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar.
