Subtemplating with ERB

In rails the concept you are looking for is a partial template. As
usual there are conventions to follow.

Partials have file names starting with an underscore. So the filename
would be _subtemplate.rhtml rather than just subtemplate.rhtml.

Then:

<%= render :partial => 'subtemplate' %>

where you want to include it.

Christian, you are better off asking this on the ruby-talk mailing list
rather than on the Rails list, since you are much more likely to get help
with a non-Rails use of ERB. You're probably going to mostly get responses
that talk about render :partial, as above, on this list.
