Naughtily, IE used the non-standard CSS for the hand icon
cursor:hand
for IE5 up until 6. Version 6 now supports the standards version...
cursor:pointer
and their older proprietary version. Netscape 6 supports only the standards version.

Is there a simple way I can deliver for all of these browsers? I've tried stuff like

cursor:hand, pointer
without any luck. I'm reluctant to serve up different style sheets and can't use <a href>

Any ideas anybody?

That's a nasty one. I can only see separate stylesheets to deal with it. I run into these kind of issues a lot, and I often abandon the niceties of the page.

Can't wait 'til all the browsers are on the same page - maybe version 8, eh?

PS - I'd love to see a simple answer myself. I gave up playing with cursors because of this kind of craziness.

I just do

cursor: pointer;
cursor: hand;

it's all kind of non-conforming, but seems to work.

Thanks eeblet - just tried that and it didn't work in NN6. Does it work for you?
