Cursor does not display as a pointing hand when hovering over a hyperlink

In HTML published from Visio drawings, when hovering over a shape with a hyperlink, the cursor doesn't change to a pointing hand.
This is an issue with VML graphics in HTML generated by Visio 2003 SP3. The HTML output was revised in SP3 to address an issue with hyperlinks when viewing the web pages in Internet Explorer 7. The attribute which defines the cursor style wasn't included.
Upgrade to Visio 2007 or later. This issue is rectified in Visio 2007 and later versions.
Applies to:
  • Visio 2003 SP3
