Do compact florescents change maximum wattage allowed?

Most of my lamps and light fixtures suggest a maximum wattage to use. I've always assumed this was related to heat output, not power consumption, so believe that if I switch to compact florescents, I can use higher wattage bulbs (if they're called that) in the fixtures. Am I right?
