Thanks for your reply. I am using Windows so I guess I'm out of luck as far
as designing my own cursor. I tried the form that is supposed to work with
windows but no luck with that either. The code below produces the error
message:  TclError: bad cursor spec "@CROSS_M.CUR". I also tried using the
full pathname ("@C:\windows\cursors\cross_m.cur" and
"@c:\\windows\\cursors\\CROSS_M.CUR") but the result was the same. Any
further advice?
