An newbie question.  I have a "script" tag included in the response of
an ajax call (from a link_to_remote) But this script tag is in the
response(seen in firebug) but not on the webpage.  It is stripped by
something.

I try to use the jquery auto complete plugin but I'm having hard time to
set this up.

any helps will be appreciated.

I don;t know jquery, but prototype by default strips script tags from
responses. You might want to poke around the jquery api and see if
they do anything similar.

Thank you Frederick,

That means I can't have an other ajax call within an ajax response.  Its
odd.  In my case I have 'tabs' and the action of these tabs are in ajax,
within these tabs I have an auto complete field.  How can I make this
work?

Thank you

Rémi

With prototype it's just the default. You don't have to have it that
way (don't know about jQuery)

Well a lot of folks shy away from script tags altogether these days,
and just attach event handlers to stuff (eg from the callbacks of the
thing that caused the partial to be inserted that way). I got the
impression jQuery in particular leant quite heavily that way.
