I'm adding new functionality to MetaFilter. I'm testing out a floating, draggable menu for links. The links are static for now, but will be customizable by users. It should work in IE4+ and NS4+, post a comment with your OS/browser if you find any problems. I'm also playing with the stylesheet for this page, since I just noticed the spacing between posts looks awful in IE4.5 on the Mac.

It might be nice to see the cursor on the menu turn into a hand.

#floater

cursor: hand;

Yeah I was thinking that too. What's weird is w3c CSS2 spec you mentioned says I should use cursor:pointer, but according to this webmonkey tutorial, it is currently supported only in IE on the mac, and the hand property isn't a standard, but works in IE5. Since I use IE5 more than anything else, I added the code. Thanks Lawrence.

wonderful. I can see immediate uses for this & would love to get my hands on it!

I vote for the hand too, but a graphic (say a menu bar with an arrow on it) could help in the meanwhile...
