While cursor: hand is not valid, it is valid (in CSS2) to use a URI to point to a cursor resource, so you can use cursor : url("hand.cur"), and even provide a list so the user agent can pick the one it can handle (just as with font families). Why use invalid code when valid code can accomplish the same thing?
