Can a compact fluorescent bulb be used in a lamp with a 3-way switch?

Well, they sell 3-way compact fluorescent bulbs, but they're

quite a bit more expensive; up to 20 dollars a bulb!...Harder to

find as well, since many people (myself included) debate whether

the purchase is worth it. I've made the switch w/ all but my

three-way lamp. Anyway, using a one-way cf bulb will pose the same

problems as using an incandescent one-way as far as electrical fire

hazards. Hope that helps!
