One tip though, you don't have to use rhtml as the file extension to  
use ERb.
It's really a Rails thing to require that extension.
eruby itself can process text from just about whatever you use it for.
Truth is, file extensions don't really mean much at all in many cases.
Apache does care about them though, and you would need to edit  
httpd.conf (or one of the other conf files) or htaccess to tell it  
what file extensions are files that should be sent to Eruby for  
processing first.
