Your first post rather implied that you could since you were using
page.call. Anyway, first off you can use update_page to get an rjs
like page object anywhere you happen to be. Secondly prototype’s
update stuff is as simple as $(‘some_div’).update(‘hello world’). If
however you are generating the html in rails and then just injecting
html properly (and if you quote the string with " you need to escape
any " in the html (and similarly with '). page.call does all that for
you, there’s a helper whose name I forget that does that and to_json
would probably do the trick too.
