Why not style the root element? Testing the body element would also
test inheritance.

I *am* wondering if hixie intended for the test to say
   "Hover *anywhere* on this page"
i.e. to test also whether cursor applied to the root element applies
to the entire canvas, rather than only to the root element.

Ian, can you clarify your intention for this test?

Hm, interesting. I converted the image to PNG when converting the
test for the CSS2.1 test suite. Maybe PNG is not a supported cursor
format on some systems, but GIF is. I've added a copy in GIF as a
fallback, please check if this solves the problem:
