There are two basic cases where I want to use FormHelper (form_for) to
create select tags:
1) Where the options come from another table
2) Where the options come from a manually created list or hash
An example of 1 might be a tagging application. I may have a photo
sharing site that lets users select a tag from a list box (select) and
the tags come from a table.
An example of 2 might be a new/edit user form where gender is male or
female and male is stored as 1 and female is stored in 2.
I cannot find a simple example of these 2 cases. So,
a) can someone post a simple example of both
b) where does a new rails developer find docs for this stuff?
