<cfset nTax = .05 />
<cfset nPrice = 5.95 />
<cfset nTotal = nTax * nPrice + nPrice />

Wouldn't you want to say

<cfparam name="nTax" default=".05"><cfparam name="nPrice" default="5.95">

instead? Also, I'd wrap the <cfoutput> tags only around the variables

Price: <cfoutput>#dollarformat(nPrice)#</cfoutput>

(also put the dollar numbers in dollar format on all of them. :)
