Yes! That did the trick. I actually used:

<cfloop collection="#filters#" item="key">
<cfset text = ReplaceNoCase(text, "[#key#]", "#filters[key]#")>

It never would have occurred to me to loop over the same variable over  
and over. It's sort of like "progressive filtering". And now a dream  
from my early days of programming can come true :)

Good call, and thanks!
