Point your finger?

There are many web sites that I encountered with this finger problem.

The table row is converted to change color during a "mouseover" event.

But the mouse cursor will only turn to a hand sign if it hovers over the link. If your mouse pointer moves away from the <a> link, you will see this:

For those who are used to Windows or Mac environment will not be happy about this. In order to make it more user-friendly, a simple code can be added to the <TD>:

onmouseover = "'pointer'"

Then it will look like this:

Note that if your <TD> already have an mouseover event handler, you can add this code by using a ';' after your handler. For example:

onmouseover = "changecolor();'pointer'"

Here we go! It now looks professional right?
