using cfmail some html formatting in form field doesn't translate

using cfmail to send this email:

the paragraph tag works great but the font tag seems to mess things up (these are being generated by session variables)

<input name="EmailSubject" type="hidden" id="EmailSubject2" size="110" value="THIS IS A TEST BROTHA">
          <input name="EmailText" type="hidden" id="EmailText" size="110" value="<p>HI THERE</p>
<p><font color="##FF0000">WHAT'S</font> UP?</p>">

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

get rid of the double quotes in your font tag

<input name="EmailSubject" type="hidden" id="EmailSubject2" size="110" value="THIS IS A TEST BROTHA">
<input name="EmailText" type="hidden" id="EmailText" size="110" value="<p>HI THERE</p><p><font color='##FF0000'>WHAT'S</font> UP?</p>">
