Partial problem from down under


I’m trying to display a partial with the :collection parameter.
The value i pass to the collection parameter is an array of hashes,
something like… [{‘a’=>‘1’},{‘a’=>‘2’}].
I would have expected that if I display something like partialname[‘a’]
within my partial, I would see the values of ‘1’,‘2’ etc. But it comes
out a nil object.

If i use an ordinary array, or hash seems fine. Also if i use an active
record object seems fine also.

I suspect my problem is my understanding of ruby language itself.

Please help. Si.
