This is probably an easy quest, but I am a CF n00b and I can't find the answer anywhere. Ok, heres the problem I am querying a database and getting results. Then with the result I want to create a page that does the following

<a href="#12">Title of the Thing</a>

further down the page...
<a name="12"></a>Title of the Thing

Heres my coldfusion code:
<cfoutput query="theQuery"> <a href="##ID#">#title#</a>

further down the page..
<a name="#ID#"></a>#title#</cfoutput>

The problem is with the ##ID#(it doesn't like this), I need a way to seperate the # which is html from the #ID# which is coldfusion variable. Thanks in advance.

Hi thecode101,
use  ###ID# instead of  ##ID# it will work.
