When the mouse hovers over a javascript link the pointer icon should be a hand
to indicate it is a link.  In the link above the hand does not appear.  

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to the link 
2.On the left side hover over the javascript menus.
3.the pointer icon should be a hand over the links but it is not.

Actual Results:  The pointer icon is the one one used for text selection.

Expected Results:  When hovering over the links the mouse icon should be the
hand to indicate that it is an active link.

I noticed the same thing in windows as well.  Netscape 4 and IE display the
pointer correctly.

I noticed bug 129350 was marked as resolved but it didn't fix the original
problem with the URL
The links still have the editor cursor instead of the hand.

This is not a bug as far as I see it.
If you look at the page in DOM Inspector of try to actually look through the
javascript code ( see Flyout function ), you will see that the the menu is
generated by creating a <div> for each item in the menu and placing onmouseover,
onmouseout, onclick handlers on the div.
They are *not* links but just regular elements written to *act* like links.

I think this bug should be resolved as INVALID since there's no bug after all,
but this is expected behaviour.

BTW. The reason it works in IE is because of the cursor: hand property which is
not part of CSS2 standard.

So what can we do with this bug?

Can't Netscape modify their site to send 'cursor: pointer' when the ua is gecko?
