What is causing this difference between my Ruby on Rails console output and my Firebug console output when using a Ruby date object?

Can anyone explain the difference between the Ruby on Rails console output and the Firebug console output?

event_controller.rb

def list_events @days[1][:date] = (((Date.new(2010, 8, 6)) + 1).to_s) end

list_events.html.erb

<% @days.each_with_index do |day, i| %> <% p day[:date] %>; //RoR console console.log(<%= day[:date] %>); //Firebug console <% end %>

Ruby on Rails console output:

"2010-08-07"

Firebug console output:

1995

-------------Problems Reply------------

The JavaScript statement that is actually being executed is this:

console.log(2010-08-07);

—This is evaluated as 2010 minus 8 minus 7, which equals...1995! You have to make sure that the console log statement receives a string. Try this instead:

console.log("<%= day[:date] %>");
