Don't know whether this has been discussed for the core, or if anyone has seen a plugin. Can anyone think of a reason why the form helpers don't produce corresponding labels? ...... Take the following example.... <label for="hotel_content_airportlocal" class="inputLabel">Name of Local airport</label> <%= text_field 'hotel_content', 'airportlocal'%> The helper for text_field is compact but the necessary label code is twice as long when most of the information is specific for the field. Surely a syntax such as.... <%= text_field 'hotel_content', 'airportlocal', :label => "Name of local airport"%> would be much more DRY. You could always pass false to :label to omit this. Any thoughts?
