1) Script Title: Glossy Accordion Menu

2) Script URL (on DD): http://dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/ddaccordionmenu-glossy.htm

3) Describe problem:

Hello,

I have added the glossy accordion menu properly to my site. When hovered or clicked on the menu headers or menuitems, they are also colored properly. But the active menuitem does not keep the color as defined by css : when I click on a menuitem (and a new page is loaded), the corresponding menuitem does not keep the color defined with the css class

.glossymenu div.submenu ul li a:active

or
.glossymenu a.menuitem:active

What can I try to solve this problem? I'm rather new to this and I didn't find any clear answer on this forum. The code I use is displayed below. Because my links are generated through asp code, it's difficult for me to display the html used. Do I need to adapt the oninit or onopenclose

Any help is greatly appreciated,

The script has been added to the head of my site as following:
