trying to do an observe_field, but i'm getting a javascript "Form is
not defined" error


     <label>Account Type:</label>
     <%= select :user, 'tmp_type', ['choice_one','choice_two'],
{ :prompt=>"select account type" } %>

<%= observe_field :user_tmp_type, :update =>
'account_type_options', :url => { :action =>
'account_type_details' }, :with => "'account_type='+value" %>

<div id="account_type_options">
	<!-- results go here -->


any suggestions on why i'm getting this javascript error?

Does that code live within form tags?
