horizontal row div menu

Hi,
I'm working on a horizontal row menu, to use like folder tabs. Does
anyone know what the CSS style "cursor" is supposed to produce? Any working
samples? I put it in the code, but can't see anything resolve.
http://www.w3schools.com/css/pr_class_cursor.asp

It's probably staring right at me, but can someone tell me why hover isn't
working in IE, but does in Mozilla?

onmouseover="st yle='cursor:han d;'"

This would change the cursor arrow to a hand when the mouse is over the
item.
Used in some cases to show that there is a link when it is not an underlined
link.

If the horizontal menu is created with ordinary text links, like it should be,
that the cursor will adapt to normal link behaviour. And that is what is good
for your visitors, since they know exactly what to expect with a cursor behaving
like that.

That is javascript, you dumbass. OP asks for CSS style.

item.


If you need a javascript to produce that behaviour, you did something very
stupid to start with in the markup of your page.
But then again, it's RtS talking here.

To OP: ignore all that Richard ever writes or has written. Google for RtS in any
of the web authoring groups to find out why. He has no relevant knowledge on the
subject and continues to advise people in here with the most stupid thoughts and
ideas ever seen in these groups.

Forgot to mention: (I can see you started out with my example menu :-) ) You
forgot to put

a {
display:block;
width:100%; }

in there somewhere (for the links in your menu). If you add that, your visitor
can click on any part of the 'tab' and get linked through. Probably this is what
you needed in the first place, so forget what I said before (and _do_ ignore all
that RtS writes).

You're right. Although IE doesn't seem to support 'pointer' as a value for the
cursor property. But then again, we all know what the resemblance between RtS
and IE (for Win) is :-D









They're both crap and therefore either hated or not taken seriously, depending
on how long ago one found out.

It isn't even javascript, just another nonsense product of a deranged
mind. The javascript would be more like:-

onmouseover="th is.style.cursor = 'hand';"

- and still not do anything useful on a non-IE browser.

Just shows how much I know on _that_ subject :-D I have no knowledge on
javascript at all.

Thanks for completing the comment I was trying to make.

Barb and all,
I added the display/width styles, as you suggested.
Yes, your example from last week or so. Thanks, so much,
as I'd never seen it done as a list. IE refuses the hover styling
for the <li> items, so I added a class to <a> to make it work
and keep it seperate (not yet uploaded).

I'm considering trying to learn dynamic web pages, scripting, but see
that it's quite a task. Any opionions on where to start. ASP, PHP,
JavaScript, Perl, Python. Just want to learn the basics, fairly simple
introduction. My domain hosting doesn't allow cgi, etc., so also
wondering what suggestions might be out there. They do allow js.
Just want to start with basic assembly, grab this and grab that, to render
a few pages.

thanks..
me
