I'm trying to update a specific div section by trying to add some
embedded ruby code below.  It's not liking it though.  You see below
i'm trying to replace >>> :update => "msg_box>", <<< with >>> :update
=> "msg_box_<%= item.id %>", <<< but it's bad syntax or something.  How
can I do this?

Here's my little Ruby on Rails webpage that uses Ajax:

>>>>>
<% for item in @my_items %>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Ajax Demo</title>
    <%= javascript_include_tag "prototype" %>
  </head>
  <body>
    <div id="msg_box">
      <%= link_to_remote( "Item Details",
###  normally its :update => "msg_box>",
                         :update => "msg_box_<%= item.id %>",
### you see in the line above i'm trying to update the div with id
"msg_box_1" for example...
                         :url =>{ :action => :get_details }) %>
    </div>
  </body>
</html>
<% end %>

<<<<<

Thanks for reading.
