Default no route found "/\\look\\at" with {:method=>:get}

Ok, Its established that some of the actions that are called for in these rails apps work in certain browsers and others not.

Why don't we actually fix this?

The way this is formated in the input.rhtml

<form action = "\look\at">
<form action = "look\at">

With the slash forward or back does not work in fire fox but does in IE.
It also seems to me to be OS independent. AE. it's repeatable in 'nix systems as well as Windows.
Since I don't have a MAC I can't really see if this working in Safari or not.
Can we come up with a fix that will cover both of these browsers? I think this is an HTML issue not so much a rails issue.

Is there actually a controller called look with an action called at?

This isn't really a bug, but is to do with what the browser is reading the URL as meaning. IE is thinking that you are requesting a windows file from a local windows network, Firefox is trying to read the address as a proper http url. If you're developing for the web you should always use unix style / slashes, not windows style \ slashes.

Lets have a look at your routes.rb. And the source for your look controller.
