[thelist] Styling <area> tag with a cursor...not possible?

Hey all!

Trying to set the cursor to pointer for certain areas of an imagemap. 
This is what the CSS looks like:

   area { cursor: pointer; }

...and the <area>-tags are normal area-tags inside <map></map>.  The 
only thing is that I'm using the nohref attribute, and that might be 
preventing this.

Does anyone have any experience with this?  I know that the <area>-tag 
is to be used for links and that the hand-cursor is to be used for 
clickable links, but this is a special case, and I would like to be able 
to display the hand cursor anyway...

Thanks for any and all replies.

- Peter
