Looking for some feedback on this.  In the legacy app that I'm moving
to Rails we've treated customers a bit like "Wheel of Fortune" -- you
can enter data in a format that matches your paperwork but once it's
in our system it's ours to keep.  I'd like to continue this type of
custom entry if at all possible in the Rails version.

One important key is that the data that is captured is fairly standard
-- it's primarily the layout/sequence that changes.

The concept that I was pondering was capturing the necessary rhtml in
a db text field and then using "render :inline" to push it to the
browser.  Thoughts?
