Animated .gifs don't make animated cursors. They have to be converted to .ani files. However, only Internet Explorer will support .ani files right now, I believe (not sure about Chrome). Conversely, Internet Explorer doesn't support .gif cursors. It only supports .cur and .ani.
ETA: As far as I can tell, Chrome does not support .ani files either.
I don't recommend it, but you'll need to find software that converts .gifs to .anis. I doubt you can upload .anis to standard image hosting sites, so you'll need to upload it to your own hosting as well.
You could try:
cursor: url('cursor.ani'), url('cursor.gif'), crosshair;
but I'm not sure if that will work. My theory is Firefox etc. will ignore the .ani and use the .gif, but it's only a theory.

That's how inheriting from parent elements works. The simplest solution would be to make a 50% transparent pixel and use it as a tiled background of the CSS box, as suggested.
It can be done in CSS
, but for now images are probably the easiest way to do it. (Remove the opacity tag.)
You might not have access to sufficient image editing software right now, so here's one:

Don't ask about image choice >.> Just picked a random img off the page. It stretches, but I don't know the dimensions of the image you want to put in, so you'll have to adjust that yourself. ;)
PON PON WAY WAY WAY
