script type
Insert a dummy text of a certain length. Actually, the text isn't
generated but selected from some text. By default, the following text is
used, which is included in the archive:

NOTE: The webpage didn't contain any copyright message but there is a
statement that one is allowed to paste the text into "your document".
I thus assume it's ok to include it in the archive. If not, please let me know.

    Insert some random text.

    Replace the random text with something else or simply remove it.
install details
Edit the vba file and type:

    :so %

See :help vimball for details. If you have difficulties or use vim 7.0,
