Hi,

Is there any way to change the cursor look ?
I want to use a onclick to send using "POST", as oposed to
a hyperlink that uses the "GET".The only thing is that the
mouse cursor does not change when entering the area.
I would like to say something like onmouseon="change the
cursor look"

Thanks.

They don't seem to work with a map.

<map name="themap">
<area ....>
<area ...>
</map>
How can I make the cursor, when the mounter enters an area, become a hand ?

The problem is that I do not want to use a href.
I use a form, with post.
I need to have some java script function that will trigger
on "onmouseover" or something like that.

well, i was the first to suggest css and gave a good example[which is the solution btw].
what i get........nothing


i ask you to close all the pending Q's
what i get........flames


Well, and about your GET|POST thing, it has nothing to do with style="cursor:hand;";

go ask the people you want to have something with, theyll say the same.


regards,
