Just going from memory I don't think Mozilla supports it at all (don't think opera does either, unless it's new to v7). Also in the draft of CSS 2.1 I thihnk URL for cursors have been removed for some reason.
Don't think it's supported.
ppk couldn't get it to work: http://www.xs4all.nl/~ppk/css2tests/cursor.html
I think only IE supports it so far.
I tried a quick test page I made that contained cursor: url("cursor.cur"), hand; with IE6, Mozilla 1.3 and Opera 7 Beta 2, and only IE displayed the cursor I made.
I quote from the link above:
Only Microsoft supports it´s own "standards",
but standards are not made by a single company,
standards should serve the industry and therefore be independent from a single company.
The standards setting organization is W3C!
cursor: url(..) is in the current W3C recommendation: http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/ui.html#cursor-props
Obviously IE is the only browser that supports this W3C recommendation. That is all there is to it.
then reread my posting:
cursor:hand is MS proprietary, cursor:pointer the w3c proposal.
So why did he test if IE6, Mozilla 1.3 and Opera 7 supports it?
That is no scientific test,
IE6 must support it, since it is his own spec,
the others are not specified to conform to MS-standards.
You have been asking for support of a W3C-standard,
Arctic Dragon stated the non-support of a non-standard by non-IE6-browsers.
you either misunderstood the CSS code or the post: the point is whether the browsers support the cursor:url(ss) construct, not the cursor: hand construct. I did a test myself with cursor: url(...), auto; with all these browsers and can confirm that only IE supports this.
That IE supports the non-W3C "hand" is a completely different issue and irrelevent to the topic discussed here.
For your info: the recommended behavior for "cursor: uri(some1), uri(some2), auto;" or "cursor: uri(some1), uri(some2), hand;" or whatever is that the UA uses the first one it supports or inherits the default one.
So if Mozilla would support cursor:uri() it would not need to look at "hand" or whatever comes after it.
(You can use cursor: hand, pointer; to make both Mozilla and IE happy)
See <a href="http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=38447">bug 38447</a>, if I'm understanding you correctly.
