I know this is possible by editing the style sheet and adding cursor: hand; but this does not work in Netscape version 4.7. Is there are way to implement this in Netscape using javascript?

cheers

no; ns4 doesn't support cursor styles

just think of it like this:
if a style property is not working with CSS, then setting it using javascript will definitely not also work.

"hand" is also an invalid cursor value.

"pointer" is the correct one, and will work in NS6+, as well as IE6.

but not ie5 ...

I think you can go

cursor: pointer,hand;

to work for ie5 as well

Hmm, that hand thing doesn't work for me in IE 5.5 (?) - but here's the basic idea of how to change the cursor with CSS for you alaios:

<html>
<head>
<style type="text/css">
<!--
body{
cursor: crosshair
}
-->
</style>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>

you can in ie6 use
cursor: url(...); to have a custom cursor
and for alaios these are the differnet cursors

auto;
all-scroll;
col-resize;
crosshair;
default;
hand;
help;
move;
no-drop;
not-allowed;
pointer;
progress;
row-resize;
text;
vertical-text;
wait;
n-resize;
ne-resize;
nw-resize;
w-resize;
e-resize;
s-resize;
se-resize;
sw-resize;

all applicable in IE 6
