3) Hi dynamic drive team...
Could you please point me in the right direction for
making the arrow show when adding the class "selected" (either in li or a:active)


<ul class="arrowunderline"
<li> <a href="#"><b>test</b>Concept</a></li>
<li class="selected"><a href="#"><b>test</b>Community</a></li>
<li><a href="#"><b>test</b>Partner</a></li>
</ul>


thanks a ton in advance

Sure, use the below modified version of the code, which supports a CSS class of "selected" that can be inserted into a particular menu link to always show the underline arrow underneath that item. Changes in red:


<style>

ul.arrowunderline{
list-style-type:none;
margin:0;
padding:0;
text-align:center; /* enter "left", "right", or "center" to orient the menu accordingly */
font: bold 16px Georgia;
}

ul.arrowunderline li{
display:inline;
margin-right:25px; /* spacing between each menu item */
}

ul.arrowunderline li a{
position:relative;
color:black;
padding-bottom:8px; /*spacing between each menu item and arrow underline beneath it */
text-decoration:none;

}

ul.arrowunderline li a:hover, ul.arrowunderline li a.selected{
border-bottom:3px solid purple; /* style of arrow underline */
}

ul.arrowunderline li a:hover:after, ul.arrowunderline li a.selected:after{ /* use CSS generated content to add arrow to the menu */
content:'';
width:0;
height:0;
position:absolute;
left:50%;
margin-left:-5px; /* value should match border-width below */
bottom: 0;
border-width:5px; /* value should match margin-left above */
border-style:solid;
border-color: transparent transparent purple transparent; /* create up arrow */
}

</style>
