Problem Description:
The URL attribute of CFChart does not function properly when format="HTML"

Steps to Reproduce:

1) Create a new CFML document named "charts.cfm"
2) Copy and paste the code below into charts.cfm:
        yAxisTitle="Salary Average"
    <cfchartseries type="bar" seriesLabel="Average Salaries by Department">
        <cfchartData item="Finance" value="75000">
        <cfchartData item="Sales" value="120000">
        <cfchartData item="IT" value="83000">
        <cfchartData item="Facilities" value="45000">    


3) View charts.cfm in your browser and click one of the data items.  This action should/will redirect your browser window to  (Successful!)

4) Edit charts.cfm to insert the follow attribute for the <cfchart> tag.  Place the attribute directly after url="":

5) View the new charts.cfm in your browser and click one of the data items.  This action should redirect your browser window to; however, nothing happens. (NOT Successful!)

This is the bug that I have encountered.  the URL attribute does not function properly when format="html".

Actual Result:
Nothing Happens when you click on a data item

Expected Result:
Redirect browser window to when user clicks a data item

Any Workarounds:
Must use format="flash" for the URL attribute to work properly.
