I use FP2000 as a html-editor. My navigation bars show hover buttons, but no way the cursor changes to a hand over these buttons. I tried several changes to the code but lack of knowledge keep me from results.
A typical button in code looks like:

<applet code="fphover.class" codebase="./" width="170" height="24">
        <param name="color" value="#000080">
        <param name="hovercolor" value="#0000FF">
        <param name="textcolor" value="#FFFFFF">
        <param name="text" value="Index">
        <param name="effect" value="glow">
        <param name="font" value="Dialog">
        <param name="fontstyle" value="bold">
        <param name="fontsize" value="14">
        <param name="url" valuetype="ref" value="index.htm">
        <param name="style" valuetype="cursor" value="hand">
      </applet>

I tried a new parameter (as the last line, in numerous versions) and as html in the first line, nothing helps. Hav a look at the testpage: http://www.theobakker.net/zoomify2.htm
How can it be done??

Put ur applet in a seperate div or span and on their onmouseover and onmouseout events write a javascript function to change cursor.

<span onmouseover="changeToPointer();" onmouseout="changeToHand();">
<applet.....
.
.
.
.
</applet>
</span>

<param name="style" valuetype="cursor" value="hand">

I don't know if your applet suports that but I suggest you to change it into this:

<param name="style" valuetype="cursor" value="pointer">

or more probably:

<param name="cursor" value="pointer">

This should do the trick in case it supports tee syling of cursors.
You might wan't to add this for older IE's to.

<param name="cursor" value="hand">

Cheers
