I 'm currently developing a fully ajaxified Portal with RoR for a

In the page, i have an In Place Editing Area :
Clicking on the area (div), replace it with a content coming from a
Partial (i've extended the component InPlaceEditor from controls.js
for this)..This first Partial is called A

In this partial A.rhtml, i render a second 'inner' partial as :
render :partial=> 'display_row', :collection=>@my_collection

My 'display_row' inner partial includes the following code :
<div id='myrow'>
<div id='mycell1'>blah blah</div>
<div id='mycell2'>blah blah</div>
... my source here ....

But when testing in the browser, and checking generated code with
Firebug, i do not see any node <script> in my HTML page...seems to
have been skipped

This same 'display_row' inner partial is reused directly from RJS (in
the controller) :
render :update do |page|
      page.insert_html :bottom, "container", :partial => "display_row"

In this second case it works..i can see the node <script> in the
generated HTML

Are there limitations with partials rendered from another partial?

When rendering through partials, <script> tags are stripped out of the
resulting source and the javascript inside said tags is executed (unless
course evalScripts is set to false, default is obviously true).

I wouldn't worry about it too much, though do make note that if you are
trying to define a javascript function in a partial's script tags, it
likely won't work (at least, I haven't figured out how). So in this case
need to define the function in the initial page HTML, or in javascript

I suppose doing a Ruby helper on top of my Javascript won't help
In any case, the generated <script> tag will be stripped out
