XSS and Unobtrusive JavaScript in Rails 3 Jump to Story

Rails 3 adds string escaping by default to your views to help protect against cross-site scripting. This is a major change from Rails 1 and 2 where you had to explicitly use the h() method. Also, Rails has been updated to use unobtrusive JavaScript when exercising the Rails view helpers. This not only gives you better usability, but it also makes Rails far more JavaScript framework agnostic.
