can't get jquery_ujs to work

I've followed the instructions on the git page for rails three, and
set my form tags to :remote=>true
but the inputs in the forms are not showing up with any data-elements
and when i change data nothing is sent back to the server

is there something else i have to do on the forms, do all the input
tags have to be set to :remote=>true as well?

thanks

Post a view, i.e. a file that ends in .html.erb, which contains your
form.

but the inputs in the forms are not showing up with any data-elements

An <input> element does not send out a request. A <form> sends out a
request when you click on the submit <button>. In other words, after
the user fills out a form, they click the submit button, then the
browser creates a request containing the info on the form, then the
browser sends the request to your server, and the server passes the data
to your rails app.

and when i change data nothing is sent back to the server

Data gets sent back to the server after you click the submit button.
It's possible to use javascript to detect an onchange event for an
<input> element, but you need to know javascript or jquery to do that.
