ViewFu HTML Helpers
=======
ViewFu provides helpers for commonly used html elements

br #=> <br />
hr #=> <hr />
anchor("posts") #=> <a name='posts'></a>
clear #=> <div class="clear"></div>
clear(:left) #=> <div class="clearleft"></div>
clear_tag(:br) #=> <br class="clear" />
lorem #=> Lorem ipsum dolor...

Haml Specific Helpers
=======
Haml allows you to pash a hash of attributes. ViewFu assists this by providing a simple "hidden" helper that allows you to conditionally hide page elements.

%div{hidden} #=> <div style="display:none">
%div{hidden(:if => @posts.empty?)} #=> hide the .posts div if the array is empty
%div{hidden(:unless => @posts.empty?)} #=> hide the empty posts message if the array has elements
%div{add_class("empty", :if => @posts.empty?)} #=> add the "empty" class if the array is empty

Meta Tags
=======
ViewFu allows you to set meta tags on your page header from anywhere. Just add a call to meta_tags somewhere in your page header.

meta_tags
output all the html meta tags currently on the page

meta_keywords
output the meta keywords tag

meta_keywords(val)
set the page meta keywords

meta_description
output the meta description tag

meta_description(val)
set the page meta description
