Does respond_to play nicely with render :update?

I think I remember an issue that when using custom formats you need to
give the full path the the partial like :partial => 'posts/

Try to include the extension -- :partial => 'posts/


If I do this, it works:

page.replace_html('search_results', render(:partial =>

Notice that originally, I was passing just the hash key/value pair, but
now I am passing a render call.

According to the API docs:

"options_for_render may be either a string of HTML to insert, or a hash
of options to be passed to ActionView::Base#render."

which is what I was doing that wasn't working. I wonder if what happens
when I pass the render call, is that returns a string that is used in
the replace_html call.
