changing cursors for maps

P: n/a
I'm trying to dynamically change the cursor of a couple of maps over an
image. Basically the image is in an online photo system where there is a
rotate mode. In this mode clicking on the left or right half of the image
rotates it 90 degrees to the left or right. I want to change the cursor to
indicate this but only while in the rotate mode. After looking at it in the
Mozilla DOM inspector it seems as if the style is changing but neither
Mozilla or MSIE are actually changing the cursor.

A simpel version of the problem is at http://geoffsoper.co.uk/mouseover/
where the two buttons simulate the mode changing.

I'd be very grateful for any advice here!

Thanks,
Geoff

I do not think css-style is possible with <area>

Try it this way:

Ah, thanks for that!

Just before I saw your post I thought of a solution, it seemed to work and
is at http://geoffsoper.co.uk/mouseover/index2.htm . Basically I change the
cursor style for the whole image when the mouse goes over either the left or
right side map areas and back to 'auto' when the mouse leaves either area.
This works fine until I try to use my own cursors as shown in
http://geoffsoper.co.uk/mouseover/index3.htm , this time the cursor
disappears completely! Is there a problem with the way in which I set the
custom cursor or with the cursor itself? I realise Mozilla doesn't yet
support the custom cursor part of CSS2.

Again, any help much appreciated!

Thanks,
Geoff
