Yes, I know this is a fairly well trodden path; BUT . . . .

I am looking to use a PNG image ("XXX.png") as a cursor image
within a text field only.


And I have just tried this in a fld in a stack that contains an image ID 

the script is in the fld's script-editor

on mouseMove

end mouseMove

on mouseLeave
   set the defaultCursor to empty
end mouseLeave

with no joy at all.

Using 'set the cursor' (rather than 'defaultCursor') is similarly
