I wish to know, is it possible that Ajax can update
more than one zone "<div>"???? like :

<%= link_to_remote("Title", :update => 'mydiv0', :url
=> {:action=>:say_hello} )%>

<div id="mydiv0"> to be changed one</div>
<div id="mydiv0"> to be changed two</div>

When I execute the code, only the first line is
changed, the second one doesn't...

thanks you very much

The link_to_remote will only update one DOM element.  You may want to
look into RJS templates...they will allow you to do multiple updates
on a single AJAX call.

There is a section in "Rails Recipes" that talks about using RJS to do

Ditto to both comments above.
I was looking for the exact same thing, and RJS seems to be one of the
sane ways to do this.
