Code within documentation

There was some discussion about having code that is placed in documentation, to be able to test itself while at RailsConf in Portland.

I have no idea whether this is a workable solution but it sounded reasonable.

I'm interested in contributing said documentation in the light of the more transparent way things seem to be heading. Additionally, am more willing to do that now than before when I wasn't sure that documentation would get triaged, let alone possibly accepted.

I'm just now learning Rails and do run into situations where the words used to describe how to use the particular funciton (form_for/form_tag comes to mind) are hard for a new learner to decipher...this is not your problem...this is mine.

However, I'd like to put my two cents in to hopefully clear the documentation "confusion"...at a minimum for myself, but hopefully for others as well.

Thanks for listening. :slight_smile:
