What do you mean by the rails DRY feature? DRY is coding practice not a
framework feature.

You use layouts for this. You put the common layout ERb (or HAML) in
./app/views/layouts then put the page specific ERb in
./app/views/<whatever> and use <%= yield %> and/or <%= yield
:some_content %> inside the layout templates to mark where the page
specific code should be rendered.

Rails will, by convention, look for ./app/layouts/application.html.erb
if no other layout is specified.

./app/layouts/application.html.erb
