    Coldfusion only displays variable names, not variables.


      Hi! I'm just getting started with ColdFusion and I'm having difficulties already. I have the following:


      <cfset firstname="bob">

      <p style="font-color:#ccccc">Hello <cfoutput>#firstname#</cfoutput> it is so nice to see you</p>


      But instead of saying "Hello Bob it is so nice to see you"

      it says

      "Hello #firstname# it is so nice to see you."


      I'm using xammp for apache and using dreamweaver. Can anyone help me figure out why this isn't working correctly?
