This consists of: * String#html_safe! a method to mark a string as 'safe' * ActionView::SafeBuffer a string subclass which escapes anything unsafe which is concatenated to it * Calls to String#html_safe! throughout the rails helpers * a 'raw' helper which lets you concatenate trusted HTML from non-safety-aware sources (e.g. presantized strings in the DB) * New ERB implementation based on erubis which uses a SafeBuffer instead of a String Hat tip to Django for the inspiration.
