    no, you can't move the cursor.

    You can however use a custom cursor that is invisible (ie 5+ I think) and image that looks like a cursor and write an elaborate script that makes the image follow your cursor and have the image move to the point when necessary, but you'd have to build your site around this script and I doubt it's really worth it.

    You can capture the position of the cursor (screenX, screenY), but I don't know of any way to change its position on the screen: http://developer.netscape.com/docs/m...e/eventmod.htm

    Although I'm sure this is not what you're looking for, here's a script that moves an image of a cursor around the page. Depending on why you want to move the cursor, maybe you could use something in this script to achieve the effect you're after, providing its not functionality you're looking for .
