"cursor:pointer" re IE5.5

P: n/a
This is from a previous post entitled "cursor type":

"IE 4.0 through 5.5 didn't support the cursor type 'pointer' (only the
non-standard 'hand')."

How might the following be modified to display correctly in all browsers?

<html>
<head>
<title>cursor.htm</title>
</head>
<body>
<span style="cursor:hand">hand</span>
&nbsp;
<span style="cursor:pointer">pointer</span>
</body>
</html>

Basically, can I get a hand to appear when I mouseover something in IE5.5
and IE6.0 and NS and FF?

Thanks in advance.

<span style="cursor:hand; cursor: pointer">hand</span>

Why are asking in an javascript group?
It's css, not javascript.

Thanks, but it doesn't work for me under IE5.5.

The only CSS group I saw was
microsoft.public.windows.inetexplorer.ie55.program ming.css
and it seldom had activity; perhaps one a week.

Then I rememner wrong, so is it
<span style=" cursor: pointer; cursor:hand;">hand</span>

This should work.
