I noticed there are a lot of PHP based dynamic text replacement examples out there such as: http://artypapers.com/csshelppile/pcdtr/ Is there anything like this for Ruby / Rails? I know there's always SiFR but that method is often frustrating because I've noticed significant slow down in page load time even on pages that use it sparingly.

> Is there anything like this for Ruby / Rails?Â I have something similar in my PHP framework. It's the perfect approach IMHO. So who's the first to claim RoR image replacement? If I get around it on time I'll give it a shot. - Fabien

Can someone explain why I would want to do this? After looking at the example, I just don't see the usefullness of this feature.

Mainly, its there so you can put your headers in fonts that the user may not have on his PC.

Got it.. go through a lot of extra work to have someone view a graphic instead of plain text.

Right, althogh ideally, once you put the framework in place, it would minimize (or even eliminate) the "a lot of extra work" part, at least on your part (obviously the server still has to slave away serving the images).

Hi, I've just implemented the exact thing you are after on our new blog, http://www.vivabit.com/bollocks using RMagick. I'd like to release the code soon but I've not got it up to library standard yet (configuration is not as easy as it would need to be for general use). Its a little more complex than the PHP ones posted because we wanted the replaced text to wrap in liquid layouts and we didn't use the native text rendering because it was a bit nasty and my design collegue is really picky (see this post: http://www.vivabit.com/bollocks/2005/12/19/magick-... ) If you can wait untill after xmas I'll release it as a plugin...when it's out I'd love some feedback.
