""2) cursor:hand doesn't work. Why not? This is STRONGLY needed. (Though I just accidentally stumbled upon the fact that, for some bizarre reason, cursor:pointer brings up the hand. Huh???)"

cursor: pointer is the official W3C thingy. cursor: hand is IE's proprietary method."

A workaround is to include both of them. Do something like:

.cur { cursor: hand; cursor: pointer }

IE uses hand and Mozilla ignores it and uses pointer.

cursor: hand has been logged as a bug many times and marked Invalid because it's not part of the W3C standard. See bug 40298 <>
