    i have wondered about the mouse in the website. Is this possible to change the shape of my mouse by placing a picture on it?
    Thank for answering.

    You can change the cursor "style"... not sure if you can use a graphic.

    Try this to see what I mean:
    Code:
    <body style="cursor:crosshair">
    These are the possible styles for cursors:

    auto - Shows it according to how the viewer has it set (plain)
    crosshair - Looks like a cross
    default - Makes the cursor stay the same
    move - Looks like you should be moving something
    hand - The hand you usually see over links
    help - A question mark beside the arrow
    text - The bar you see when the mouse is over text
    wait - The "waiting" hourglass!
    n-resize - An arrow- North
    s-resize - An arrow- South
    e-resize - An arrow- East
    w-resize - An arrow- West
    ne-resize - An arrow- NorthEast
    nw-resize - An arrow- NorthWest
    se-resize - An arrow- SouthEast
    sw-resize - An arrow- SouthWest

    Play around with them and see if any would suit your needs.

    Another thing you can do is use DHTML and JavaScript to make an image follow the cursor, so that it SEEMS to be the cursor. I think that's how it's handled in Flash.

    FWIW both are very annoying so you shouldn't use them unless you have to.

    Filburt, they do have a function, however.

    For instance, if you want to show movable objects in a webpage, you should give it style="cursor:move" so that it appears movable onmouseover.

    Or if you want to make an entire cell linked with the "onclick" event, you should also give it a style="cursor:hand" to display the appropriate cursor.
