Link_to not doing the expected.

Can anyone explain why a Link_to inside a table <td> should print out
the link if the field is null, but print out the field if it contain
data(text) in both rails 3 and 2.3.5.

If the field is nul it prints out:- "/dsplaces/100?
country=UK&area=London"

If the field contains data (text) it prints out correctly. The code
is:-

<td><%= link_to truncate(dsplace.description ,:length => 35),
dsplace_path(:id => dsplace.id, :country=> dsplace.country, :area=>
dsplace.placename) %></td>

Otherwise you'd have nothing to click on. Is this dsplace.description blank, perhaps?

Thanks for that I will put in an if !=null or make sure the field is
not empty
