Steps to reproduce

Based on the css-ui-3 specification, the auto value of the cursor property is supposed to be limited to switching between the “text” cursor when over text, and the “pointer” cursor otherwise. All contextual cursor changes should be handled by the UA stylesheet (or be out of scope for CSS, such as busy cursors when the site locks up, or specific cursors over native controls like scrollbars).

Edge currently doesn’t do that, and that makes it fail the following test in the css-ui-3 test suite:
