    CSS Sprite --active button not working


    I have created three button images that have been placed into one file, which I'm using for a CSS Sprite.

    Here is my HTML:

    <li><a href="myths.html" id="myths"><img src="images/myths.jpg" alt="logo" width="113" height="43" /></a></li>

    On the MAIN page I have two buttons setup that are HOME and MYTHS.

    Here is my CSS:

    #myths {
    background: url(../images/sprite_2.png) no-repeat;
    width: 115px;
    display: block;
    text-indent: -9999px;

    { background-position: 0 -80px;

    #myths:active {
    background-position: 0 -30px;

    When I place the cursor over the MYTHS button I achieve the hover effect, yet when I click on the MYTHS button to go to the Myth page, the MYTHS button is not active, indicating that this the selected page you are on.

    Any timely suggestions to resolve this situation would be greatly appreciated.

    The problem was explained once here... However

    :active is working only if you stay on that page. It indicates last clicked item (can be whatever, not only link). If page is reloaded, there is no information of last clicked item anymore.

    Solution is to make a class for active button. Something like:

    Code: {
        background-position: 0 -30px;
    And add the class to link of active page

    <li><a href="myths.html" id="myths" class="active"><img src="images/myths.jpg" alt="logo" width="113" height="43" /></a></li>
