I have a drop down on a web page and want to change the cursor from default to pointer, so my style definition has

style ="cursor: pointer;"

the drop down though fails to change from the default curor. I've tryed applying the style to the <select> tag and to the <option> tags to no avail.

It should work. Can we see that part of the markup?

<select style="cursor:move; color:red" >

if you want "pointer" why do you have "move"? What browser are you using?

it has a move as I didn't change it back after checking with a different cursor!

IE7 & 6

it looks like it sould work if you use pointer. I don't know why it's not working.

Ran the page using Opera, and the cursor changes to the selected cursor, but uner IE it just shows as the default.

I don't know what the problem could be.
