When passing a string of options to select tag it appears it you need
to use raw.
This does not work
<%= select_tag "people", "<option>David</option>" %>
<%= select_tag "people", raw("<option>David</option>") %>
Is this WAD? (Working As Designed).
example usage taken from
Creating options from options_for_select works fine but I have cases
where I usually add 1 option
options = '<option value="">Select Duration (in months)</option>' +
When I do this I need to do use raw.
<%= select_tag "months", raw(options) %>
Assuming this is WAD the documentation should probably be updated.
Is there a better way to do what I am doing above (adding an option to
the options_for_select output)?
