    IE5 user needed for quick test (5.01 or 5.5 or bot

    I'm trying to code a script to change a style, and I need some help from an IE 5 user or two. Can you load this page and post back what you get? Thanks.

    For laughs, here are the results in IE6 and Firefox 1.0 Preview:

    <table border=1 cellspacing=0 cellpadding = 5><td>Internet Explorer 6 (SP1)</td><td>Firefox 1.0 Preview</td><td valign=top>0 = A:link [no cursor style retrieved]
    1 = BODY [no cursor style retrieved]
    2 = P [no cursor style retrieved]
    3 = TD [no cursor style retrieved]
    4 = .notice [no cursor style retrieved]
    5 = .YearBanner *** cursor property = hand
    6 = .YearFooter *** cursor property = pointer
    7 = .NoPrint [no cursor style retrieved]
    8 = .NoScreen [no cursor style retrieved]
    9 = .NoPrintSpan [no cursor style retrieved]
    10 = .NoScreenSpan [no cursor style retrieved]
    11 = .NoPrint [no cursor style retrieved]
    12 = .NoScreen [no cursor style retrieved]
    13 = .NoPrintSpan [no cursor style retrieved]
    14 = .NoScreenSpan [no cursor style retrieved]</td><td valign=top>0 = a:link [no cursor style retrieved]
    1 = body, p, td [no cursor style retrieved]
    2 = .notice [no cursor style retrieved]
    3 = .YearBanner [no cursor style retrieved]
    4 = .YearFooter *** cursor property = pointer
    5 = undefined [no style properties accessible]
    6 = undefined [no style properties accessible]</td></table>
    You can see the actual style rules if you open the above page and scroll way down. The reason for all of this is that IE5 does not support the "cursor: pointer" setting, and instead uses "cursor: hand". I'm trying to find a way to alter a loaded stylesheet for IE5 users. If I use hand, Firefox just acts as though I didn't set any cursor style at all. So I'm hoping that IE5 recognizes that there's a cursor property assigned, even if it doesn't think it's valid. (Maybe I'm just wasting my time, but if it works, maybe I can use it for other things, too.)

    Rats! Oh well, thanks much for the results. I guess the idea of a generic property substition script is going to have to be completely re-thought.
