Default 'hand' is undefined

Why does this through an error:

<%
response.write "<a class='elinks' onclick='javascript: history.back()' onmouseover='javascript: style.cursor=hand'>Previous</span>"
%>

Error:

'hand' is undefined

Hand is a string value, not a variable so should be:
Code:
<%
response.write "<a class='elinks' onclick='history.back()' onmouseover='style.cursor=""hand""'>Previous</span>"
%>
You don't even need on mouseover because the cursor only changes then anyway so you can simplify to:
Code:
<%
response.write "<a class='elinks' onclick='history.back()' style='cursor: hand;'>Previous</span>"
%>
