I am wondering if there is a way to get this code to display a pointer cursor in Chrome. As it stands right now this works in FireFox. In Internet Explorer nothing works at all the items are not even clickable. Is there some way to get this working cross browser? Thanks...!

"pointer" is the cursor that normally shows up when hovering over a link. <area> elements use it as default, as far as I know. It seems that I can't change the cursor to anything else, though. I think that Chrome ignores all styling on <area> elements, after all, besides the cursor no other style rules even make sense on the <area> element.
