Watch Those Form Field Names

HTML is very forgiving when it comes to form field names – arguably too forgiving. In fact, HTML allows form fields to not be named at all, as well as to be named using only numeric characters or including special characters. ColdFusion, however, will not be able to process form fields named this way. Special characters should never be used, and numeric characters may be used as long as the first character of the name is a letter (and not a number). (Applies to: ColdFusion All)
