I got errors running tests

  1) Failure:
test_passes_coffee_options_to_the_coffee_engine(CoffeeTest) [/Users/lest/code/sinatra/test/coffee_test.rb:74]:
<"alert('Aye!');"> expected but was

  2) Failure:
test_passes_default_coffee_options_to_the_coffee_engine(CoffeeTest)     [/Users/lest/code/sinatra/test/coffee_test.rb:86]:
<"alert('Aye!');"> expected but was

So I think it's good to use stripped body in assertion

CoffeeScript 1.1.3 has whitespace changes. Probably should use a regexp to test what you care about here.

We have an assert_body helper for whitespace/newline insensitive matching.

Thanks, I've used assert_body.
