In the below tag, if the variable in the "bind" has a percent sign/url/special characters in it, it fails. I believe I need to encode/decode the variable thisVarBreaks, can someone assist?

on main page I have:
<cfdiv id="myDiv" bind="url:/site/name/myPage.cfm?myVariable=#thisVarBreaks#"/>

Open in new window

On the myPage.cfm I have:
<cfif someThing neq #URL.thisVarBreaks#>Hello</cfif>

Open in new window
