Creating Tabular FormBuilder - Form/Table Tag Order


I am using a FormBuilder to help with DRY-out my views where forms are
displayed in tables. However most examples of this seem to use the
same approach of using a view helper to combine the call to the
remote_form_for (etc…) method with the encapsulating table tags.

Doing it this way you end up with

isn’t strictly valid and which Firefox enforces although IE doesn’t.
Hence everything displays okay in IE but not Firefox.

Has anyone used a technique to get around this? Does it involve
overriding the remote_form_for (as used in this case) helper like I do
with the other form helper methods, somehow inserting

inside the generated tags?

Form helper method used in place of basic remote_form_for helper:

def tabular_remote_form_for(name, *args, &proc)


", proc.binding)

options = args.last.is_a?(Hash) ? args.pop : {}
options = options.merge(:builder => TabularFormBuilder)
args = (args << options)
remote_form_for(name, *args, &proc)


", proc.binding)


…and in the view

<% tabular_remote_form_for :product, :url =>
product_path(@product), :html => { :method => :put } do |form| %>

<table class="style3">
    <%= render :partial => 'form', :locals => { :form => form } %>

<% end %>

Thanks, Andrew

I should also say, the code shows how I am currently avoiding the
issue by manually adding

tags to each form. Ideally these
should be inserted by the builder.
