ooh, .NET.

Try this instead   MyImageButton.Attributes.Add("style", "cursor:default")

Don't use the second one, as you'll overwrite the existing style information.

Instead use the special style property:

MyImageButton.Style.Add("cursor", "default")

But the best way is to not do this in the codebehind.  Rather, it's much better to manage style informationon the client.  
Use one of the following methods:
1. Add it to the style attribute of the control.
2. Add a css class for images either in a linked css file or in a <styles> element on your page:
img {
  cursor: default;
}

The reason to do this on the client side, is that it makes it much easier to maintain.  You want to avoid needing to recompile your code just to change style information.  CodeBehind isn't good for *everything*.
