Myth: ColdFusion is Case Insensitive


I gave "ColdFusion is Case Insensitive" an Other rating because some attributes' values are case-sensitive like file names. Example: CreateObject function's port attribute. The ColdFusion server is case-insensitive, so you can mix case but for consistency and readability you should set a standard. Basically ColdFusion tags, attributes, and variables are not case-sensitive, so you can use either <cfset> or <CFSET>.
