Ah okay,

Being very new to HTML and CSS I didn't see this fact.

Guess I will just have to hard code the hilited tab for each page I drop it into.....

Subject: Re: HTML & CSS

The method you mentioned, is using jQuery.
So you will have to reference a file to use it.
In the comments you'll find a pure javascript method.

You could use it with something like this:
<http://heidecker.on-rev.com/testNav/Terms/test/>

<html>
<head>
<script language="javascript" type="text/javascript"> function hiliteTab() {
   var nav = document.getElementById('nav');
   var anchors = nav.getElementsByTagName('a');
   var current = window.location.href.split('/');
   for (var i = 0; i < anchors.length; i++) {
       var theLink = anchors[i].href.split('/');
       var dirDepth = theLink.length;
       truncAnchor = theLink.slice(0,dirDepth-1).join('/');
       truncPage = current.slice(0,dirDepth-1).join('/');
       if(truncPage == truncAnchor) {
           anchors[i].parentNode.className = "currentTab";
       }
   }
}
</script>
<style type="text/css">
#nav a:link
{
display:block;
width:200px;
font:12px verdana,sans-serif;
font-weight:bold;
color:#FFFFFF;
text-align:center;
padding:4px;
text-decoration:none;
text-transform:uppercase;
}
ul#nav
{
list-style-type:none;
margin:0;
padding:0;
overflow:hidden;
}
#nav li
{
float:left;
background-color:#8EBA44;
}
#nav li:hover,active
{
background-color:#7A991A;
}
#nav li:first-child
{
border-top-left-radius: 4px 4px;
border-bottom-left-radius: 4px 4px;
}
#nav li:last-child
{
border-top-right-radius: 4px 4px;
border-bottom-right-radius: 4px 4px;
}
#nav li.currentTab
{
background-color:#7A991A;
}

</style>	
</head>
<body onload="hiliteTab()">
<ul id="nav"><li><a href="../About/">About</a></li><li><a href="../Contact/">Contact</a></li><li><a href="../Terms/">Terms</a></li></ul>
<ul>
<li>the page can be in a nested directory</li> <li>within the link directory</li> </ul> </body> </html>
