    Variable output displays variable name, not value

      I am having an issue where my variable output is displaying the variable name and not it's value. I am currently using a MacBook Pro running OS X Yosemite. I am using ColdFusion Builder 3 to build the code and MAMP to run a local server. I have a very simple output to test whether or not I am getting correct output. The code is as follows:


      <!DOCTYPE html>






                      <h1> hello world</h1>

                      <cfset name = "John">




      After running this code, I receive the result:


      hello world



      I am confused on why the variable is displayed as the actual variable name and not its value. When running the exact same code in a windows environment, I receive the result as expected.
