Formhelper & label produces incorrect output?

I’m looking at

\InstantRails-2.0-win\ruby\lib\ruby\gems\1.8\gems\actionpack-2.3.5\lib\action_view\helpers\form_helper.rb

at line 509. The comment reads:

  #   label(:post, :title, "A short title")
  #   # => <label for="post_title">A short title</label>

When I pass
A short title
through an HTML validator (e.g. http://validator.w3.org/check )… the
message I get is


value of attribute “for” must be a single token

This attribute can not take a space-separated list of words as a value,
but only one word (“token”). This may also be caused by the use of a
space for the value of an attribute which does not permit it.


What I think the validator is looking for is this
A short title
instead of
A short title

Am I interpreting this correctly?

No, I think you’ve somehow confused the validator. I was able to get
the error message you described, but only by changing the underscore
to a space. The version without attributes is also very wrong if
you’re using an XHMTML doctype.
