Hi, this is the last post on this AJAX example  http://www.railshosting.org/#live_searching  - thanks rails gurus.

What exactly does the request.raw_post value give you?  I can't seem to find any documentation on it (probably looking in the wrong place).  The docs and wikis I've seen seem to imply that you would say something like

with => 'myVal=' + encodeURI .........

and then access params[:myVal] in the controller.  What does the raw_post value contain?  Does it just default to the value of the control your observing?  Any disadvantages to using it?

Thanks!
