How can I change the mouse cursor to a custom image?
According to W3C, you can mention a uri as "http://yourwebserverip:portnos/mycursor.cur" The custom cursor images should be in .cur or .csr format.
Now IE does support some default custom cursors. Refer the following URl for further references : http://msdn.microsoft.com/workshop/Author/dhtml/reference/properties/cursor.asp As you can see from the url, it does not give you any provision for specifying a URI for the cursor attribute in IE. NS does not support even the cursor style property
If however you want to change the cursor image only once, then a lot of ActiveX controls are available which will change the cursor image throughout the application. One such ActiveX control can be found at the site : http://cometzone.cometsystems.com/You can use this control to change the default image of the cursor when the user visits your site.
