[autocomplete] sub uri path issues

I'm running jQuery 1.4 with Rails. I have a function like so:

$("#name").autocomplete('autocomplete_name', {

matchContains: true

}).result(function(event, data, formatted) {

$.post('fill_state', {city: formatted}, null, 'script');


Which autocompletes a city name field and then runs a post to a method within Rails to get the autocompleting values back. Once one is selected, it runs a post again to the rails app to fill the state field automatically.

However, I'm running this app in a sub-uri such that is the path to my application. When I run the autocomplete method above, it chops the /rails off of the url and the calls cannot be completed because I get a 404 as the url is now incorrect.

Looking over the code now, but figured someone might have more knowledge and save me some time.
