I'm reading "Beginning Ruby on Rails E-Commerce".
Caution: Although textilize is a cool quick-and-dirty helper, as a rule
of thumb, it should never be used in a production setting.
What's wrong with textilize?
What's a better alternative?
I haven't used it myself, but textile is redcloth... and I seem to remember a thread awhile back (not even sure it was this group) about redcloth vs bluecloth and speed issues... So maybe textile is kind of slow?
But again, I haven't used it, so could be completely wrong. Search google for textile/redcloth/bluecloth for more...
