View Full Version : Help with bogus cursor

08-12-2005, 01:47 AM
I have included an attachment of my current site, minus the banner. If you unzip it into a directory and view it using firefox only, not IE (you may need to view it through a server such as Apache or IIS), you will see four different antipixel badges on the far left side directly below the navigation menu. My purpose is to have the cursor stay as the default when hovering over (instead of turning into that hand cursor for hyperlinks). I acheive this through CSS.

cursor: default;

But, if you move the cursor to the very bottom of every badge (about a pixel below), the cursor changes to a hand for a slight margin of space. It is quite annoying, especially since it works on every part of the badge but the bottom pixel. Can anyone help me with this, or is it just a rendering problem in the Gecko engine (which I highly doubt). Thanks for anything.

It should be like this:

#side .badges img {
padding: 0;
margin: 0;
border: 0;
text-decoration: none;

.badges a {
cursor: default;

And let me just add that I have no idea why you are doing this. You're taking away every visual representation of a link, messing with the user experience, and pretty much making your site a hassle to navigate. My 2 cents.
