We had a similar thing with cold fusion, I got around those issues by doing

<script language="Javascript">
	<cfinclude template="../js/contents_js.cfm">

So .. that way, the file was parsed by Coldfusion, the client(browser) never
saw a _js.cfm file in the <script src="..."> and
we also notewd (by the _js) that it was JavaScript
