In any cfinput text tag value, it will auto convert any text that it finds in a cfinput tag where it sees the string: &le and auto convert that to the symbol ?  .   It should definitely not do this!

Here is a very simple example you can run.
Notice that when you run this code in a coldfuion page, it will convert:
to the following (when it really shouldn't!):

		<cfinput type="text" name="deantesting" value="" size="50">

Confirmed that this behavior also exists in CF 2016 (Win 2012R2).

The cfinput text tag field also seems to convert the following strings: &le = is auto converted to ? &lt = is auto converted to < &gt = is auto converted to ? &ge = is auto converted to > Again, the cfinput text value should NOT auto convert the string values to these special characters when the coldfusion page loads!

Correction, this bug probably applies to both 32 bit and 64 bit version of Coldfusion 11 and Coldfusion 2016. Thus this bug is much bigger than originally reported.
