    Default Curser icon change

    Hello

    I was just wondering if anybody had any ideas, about changing the curser icon. Basically I ve got a slide show and some of the images are linked to a bigger image that opens as a pop up. What I want to do is as u pass the curser over the image it changes from the hand to a magnifying glass.
    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Thankyou

    I worked on this one a bit last night. What you seem to be asking for is a custom cursor. These are only available in IE6 but, a way to do this is to include:

    style="cursor:url(magnify.cur),auto;"

    as an attribute for your image tag or the container tag for your images. You need to have a valid cursor file named magnify.cur in the same directory as your page as well, one example (I'm no whiz at making cursors) is attached. If you want a better looking custom cursor, you may be able to find one by searching the net or even your own computer! (There are quite a few cursors in the various OS's.) You can even make your own, as I did (poorly) using any program that can create and save to the .cur format. More information on custom cursors: Custom Cursor Script IE6.
