#include "array.au3"
#Include <File.au3>
#include <INet.au3>

$oIE = _IECreate ("http://lipsum.com/feed/html", 0, 0, 0);Opens source for random text
_IELoadWait ($oIE);Waits for webpage to load

$sText = _IEBodyReadText ($oIE)

$RandomText1 = Stringleft($sText, 50);
$RandomText = StringRight($RandomText1, 200)

$file = fileopen("Text.txt", 1);
filewrite($file, $RandomText);
sleep (1000);

I came up with this, sortof quickly.. I believe I will take this somewhere, maybe it'll be of some use for you as well..

#include <INet.au3>
#include <String.au3>

$vLoremText = _StringBetween(_INetGetSource('http://lipsum.com/feed/html'), '<div id="lipsum">', '</div>')
MsgBox(0, "", StringReplace(StringReplace($vLoremText[0], '</p>', ''), '<p>', ''))
