I thought this was an interesting tidbit of information that I'd share with others who are learning.

 

Ruby and RSpec treat HTML & as just &. So when trying to test for an amperstand in should_have_content or should_have_title tag, use &, not &amp, otherwise it'll throw an error that the test returned false instead of true.

 

If anyone else has noob gotchas I'd love to hear them.
