It depends where/when you want the cursor to change.
See the attachment how to do this in javascript..

Using a style sheet you create styles for the different cursors eg:

<STYLE TYPE=text/css>
  TD        { cursor: hand;    }
  SPAN   { cursor: hairline; }

Move the mouse down the left column to see the cursor change.

move A crossed set of double-headed arrows used to indicate that the element can be moved.
