The content_tag helper allows you to do things like: content_tag(:p, "Hello world!") # => <p>Hello world!</p> It can take in blocks, for functionality like this: <% content_tag :div, :class => "strong" do -%> Hello world! <% end -%> # => <div class="strong"><p>Hello world!</p></div> Unfortunately blocks only work in erb and not as helper methods. This problem already has a ticket http://dev.rubyonrails.org/ticket/7432 Greg Pierce has come up with a fix http://greg.agiletortoise.com/2007/03/01/rails-con... but I'm looking for more. I'd like to write something along the lines of content_tag :table do content_tag :tr do content_tag :td, "first" content_tag :td, "second" end end With Greg's fix, that code doesn't crash at least, but the block.call line only returns the second td tag. I generally understand what the problem is, but my skills with Ruby blocks are coming up short. Anyone have an idea how to fix this?

If you want to write HTML like that, you should look at <a href="http://redhanded.hobix.com/inspect/markabyForRails.... greg.
