    #tabs {
    	height: 36px;
    	width: auto;
    	float: left;
    	position: relative;
    	margin-left: -30px;
    }
    
    #tabs ul {
    	float: left;
    	list-style: none;
    	margin-top: 5px;
    }
    
    #tabs ul li {
    	height: 30px;
    	margin-left: 3px;
    	margin-right: 3px;
    	display: inline;
    	float: left;
    }
    
    #tabs ul li {
    	height: 30px;

    	text-decoration: none;
    	font-weight: bold;
    }
    
    #tabs ul li a span {
    	background-color: #999999;
    	color: #FFFFFF;
    	padding: 5px;
    	font-size: 15px;

    	color: #000000;
    }
    
    #tabs ul li a:hover span {
    	background-color: #FFFFFF;
    	color: #000000;
    }
    
    #tabs ul li a:selected {

    JS CODE
    Code:
    //** Tab Content script v2.0-  Dynamic Drive DHTML code library (http://www.dynamicdrive.com)
    //** Updated Oct 7th, 07 to version 2.0. Contains numerous improvements:
    //   -Added Auto Mode: Script auto rotates the tabs based on an interval, until a tab is explicitly selected
    //   -Ability to expand/contract arbitrary DIVs on the page as the tabbed content is expanded/ contracted
    //   -Ability to dynamically select a tab either based on its position within its peers, or its ID attribute (give the target tab one 1st)
    //   -Ability to set where the CSS classname "selected" get assigned- either to the target tab's link ("A"), or its parent container
    //** Updated Feb 18th, 08 to version 2.1: Adds a "tabinstance.cycleit(dir)" method to cycle forward or backward between tabs dynamically
    //** Updated April 8th, 08 to version 2.2: Adds support for expanding a tab using a URL parameter (ie: http://mysite.com/tabcontent.htm?tabinterfaceid=0)

    	} //END int() function
    
    } //END Prototype assignment
    And links with selected on one of them and others not but it dont show up as link selected it just gives me hover.

    Thanks.

    got a link? much easier to see what isn't working if we can see it , erm, not working. on first glance, maybe you need to add css for the active state?
