    CSS menu current or active style

    Hi all,

    I have a css menu that works fine, however I want to add a current style the same as the hover style. Normally I can do this with out any hassle but with this particular menu I'm really struggling.

    I have attached the css code below, hope someone can help.

    Thanks



    #slidetabsmenu {
    float:left;
    width:100%;
    height: 65px;
    font-size:13px;
    line-height:normal;
    font-family: "Trajan Pro";
    background-attachment: scroll;
    background-image: url(../Images/stage_top.jpg);
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    background-position: center bottom;

    }

    * html #slidetabsmenu{ /*IE only. Add 1em spacing between menu and rest of content*/
    margin-bottom: 1em;
    }

    #slidetabsmenu ul{
    list-style-type: none;
    margin:0;
    margin-left: 19px;
    padding:0;
    }

    #slidetabsmenu li{
    display:inline;
    padding: 0;
    margin-top: 0;
    margin-right: 0;
    margin-bottom: 0;
    margin-left: 0;
    }

    #slidetabsmenu a {
    float:left;
    height: 55px;
    background:url(../Images/tab-left.jpg) no-repeat left top;
    text-decoration:none;
    margin-top: 0;
    margin-right: 8px;
    margin-bottom: 0;
    margin-left: 0;
    padding-top: 0;
    padding-right: 0;
    padding-bottom: 0;
    padding-left: 9px;
    }

    #slidetabsmenu a span {
    float:left;
    display:block;
    background:url(../Images/tab-right.jpg) no-repeat right top;
    font-weight:bold;
    color:#3B3B3B;
    padding-top: 20px;
    padding-right: 14px;
    padding-bottom: 3px;
    padding-left: 5px;
    height: 32px;

    }

    /* Commented Backslash Hack hides rule from IE5-Mac \*/
    #slidetabsmenu a span {float:none;}
    /* End IE5-Mac hack */

    #slidetabsmenu a:hover span {
    color: black;
    }


    #slidetabsmenu a:hover {
    background-position:0% -125px;
    }

    #slidetabsmenu a:hover span {
    background-position:100% -125px;
    }

    Assign a class of "current" (can be done dynamically with PHP, if you have that available on the server-side...otherwise just hard-code it in individual pages as appropriate) to a link when it is in the current page and then add these highlighted bits to your CSS:
    Code:
    #slidetabsmenu a:hover span, #slidetabsmenu a.current span {
    color: black;
    }
    
    #slidetabsmenu a:hover, #slidetabsmenu a.current:hover {
    background-position:0% -125px;
    }
    
    #slidetabsmenu a:hover span, #slidetabsmenu a.current span {
    background-position:100% -125px;
    }
    That should be a 1:1 copy of the hover style.

    It's usually a good idea to start out with this at the VERY TOP of your CSS: * {border:0;margin:0;padding:0;}
