We have built a re-publishing system to write Coldfusion pages in static HTML. Is there are reliable Robots.txt that will block the old .cfm pages from being crawled?

Or, maybe some other method?

robots.txt is best used to block access to a directory and not specific file extensions. if you store your coldfusion files in their own directory, robots.txt would be a good way to block that directory. if the coldfusion files are mixed among good files then you might want to think about using htaccess.
