Onmouseover Event, Cursor property not working with Netscape or Firefox

    I set the cursor property to change to the "hand" when the user performs an
    "onmouseover" event on a hyperlink object.

    This does work correctly with Internet Explorer, however, with Netscape and
    Firefox, the cursor is just the "vertical line."

    Does anyone know why this isn't working with Netscape or Firefox?

    Thanks!

    IE uses a proprietary style (hand) while netscape/firefox/safari use the
    html 4.0 standard (pointer). as IE doesn't support html 4.0, you need to get
    creative. specify both styles.

    try:

    style="cursor:pointer;cursor:hand;"
