My idea was not a counter idea to what your discussing, simply what I did with my custom tags when I need to have multiple tags ... read more »

  • Ask Ben: Executing ColdFusion Custom Tag Code If First Run Only

  • ColdFusion Component Wrapper For POI To Read And Write Excel Files

    Posted on May 25, 2007 at 9:54 AM
