Setting busy cursor for the whole page

How can I set a busy cursor for my whole page rather than just for a link?
My page calls another page with form arguments that does some processing
then changes the values on the calling page. It takes about 4 seconds so I
would like there to be some indication that processing is going on. Thanks!

You could try this in javascript ...
document.body.style.cursor = "wait" ... or just
body.style.cursor = "wait"

hope this helps
