Hi all,
In this post:
I made the following statement:
**IMPORTANT - make one pixel "outside" the cursor area to be white or black.

That is incorrect. 

It should read...
**IMPORTANT - make one pixel "outside" the cursor area (the black outline)
to be white.

This forces RunRev to set the colors in the Colors property to be:
 First Color = white
 Second Color = black
 Third Color = white

Which is the correct way to display a cursor with transparency in RunRev.

And as Jacqueline kindly pointed out:
Only one more thing: if you are planning to go cross platform with this
app, your cursor can't be 32 pixels square. Linux and Mac support only
16 pixel square cursors.

Caveat: Windows does support either 16x16 or 32x32
