A just a note for newbies

When your partial template just won't display, you might have done
what I did!

If the development.log shows it is rendered, but you see absolutely
nothing in the page source or on the borwser, you proably did what I
did.

I left out the "=".

<% render :partial => "shared/file" %> is processed, but produces no
output!

If you add the "=" to make:

<%= render :partial => "shared/file" %> it works just like you
expected!!

Key words: partial, template, render, fail, missing, no output
