    I hve set up a link within my site. It's a string of text, and when clicked, it opens a new window at a specific size. The link is working fine, but I am having a problem with the appearence of the hyperlink.

    With a normal hyperlink, the mouse pointer turn into a little hand, thereby indicating that you hovering over a piece on hypertext. But, since this is actually a Dreamweaver behavior, it won't turn into a little hand. It's a pretty minor issue, but it's bugging me. Can anyone tell me how to fix it?

    Have you looked around for an onMouseOver setting? You can change that in HTML, but I dunno about Dreamweaver...

    I found an OnMouseover command, but I didn't see how to make the pointer change to the little hand.

    To change the mosue pic, you'd have to do something like:

    onMouseOver="[string to point attention to mouse, like mouse.icon or something like that...]='[mousehandthingy.ico]'"

    The code above is a mix of VB type stuff and HTML, so you'll have to refer to a book or something to get the right string...

    You'll have to have the .ico file in the same dir and make sure it's uploaded with the .swf file.

    Good luck
