Coldfusion cfsavecontent

I am using a cfsavecontent tag to write the results from a database to a index.cfm page. The problem I am experiencing is that the cfsavecontent hard-codes the cfincludes as well. This is a problem because some of the cfincludes  will change over time.
I am not sure if there is a coldfusion or javascript way of simply ensuring that
<cfinclude template="/advert/rt_300x250.cfm">
remains within the code not the contents of the rt_300x250.cfm.

Here is a short example

<cfsavecontent variable="cachedOutput">

<cfinclude template="/advert/rt_300x250.cfm">
</cfsavecontent>


<cffile action="write"
file="#hardNewPathUrlDestintation#\index.cfm"
output="#cachedOutput#">

Open in new window

You need to escape the CF tag, so it doesn't execute.  I don't think htmleditformat will do it.. Maybe something like?

<cfsavecontent variable="cachedOutput">
<cfoutput>#chr(60)#cfinclude template="/advert/rt_300x250.cfm"></cfoutput>
</cfsavecontent>

There may be better options, but I can't think of any off the top of my head.
