Hi...  The menu (see code) works for whichever link is clicked for just the first time.  It dies not work for any subsequent link clicked; i.e., the second link is unresponsive "dead'.  What am I missing here?

The menu is a pure css horizontal menu and it can be seen in action (or non action) at www.renaissanceseniorinvestments.com.  

An unrelated question; how can I get id of the dashed boxes around selected links in FF?

HTML:

<div id="navigation">
                        <ul id="navlist">
                              <li><a href="contact.htm">Contact</a></li>
                              <li><a href="rsc.htm">RSC</a></li>
                              <li><a href="partners.htm">Partners</a></li>
                              <li><a href="success-stories.htm">Success Stories</a></li>
                              <li><a href="5-key-points.htm">5-Key Points</a></li>
                              <li><a href="index.htm">Home</a></li>
                        </ul>
                  </div>

CSS:


#navigation {
      display: block;
      position: absolute;
      z-index: 50;
      top: 195px;
      left: 0px;
      width: 880px;
      height: 30px;
      color: #FFFFFF;
      background-color: #5F6565;
}

#navigation ul {
      list-style: none;            
      padding-right: 95px;
      margin-left: 0;
      float: right;
      width: 100%;
}

#navigation ul li {
      display: inline;
}

#navigation ul li a {
      padding-right: 40px;
      text-decoration: none;
      color: #FFFFFF;
      float: right;
}

#navigation ul li a:hover {
      color: #C2C2C2;
      text-decoration: none;
}

Are you trying to select the same option again while it is selected already?
It works for me if you select the different link from what is already selected.

QPR:  Thanks for the tip it worked perfectly.

 I see that I didn't give the entire link.  It should be  www.renaissanceseniorinvestments.com/beta.  Sorry about that and no I'm not trying the same link again.  Thanks for your help on this.

                        <ul id="navlist">

                              <li><a href="rsc.htm">RSC</a></li>
                              <li><a href="partners.htm">Partners</a></li>
                              <li><a href="success-stories.htm">Success Stories</a></li>
                              <li><a href="5-key-points.htm">5-Key Points</a></li>
                              <li><a href="index.htm">Home</a></li>
                        </ul>
                  </div>

becomes

                  <div id="navigation">
                        <ul id="navlist">
                              <li id="active"><a href="#" id="current">Contact</a></li>
                              <li><a href="#">RSC</a></li>
                              <li><a href="#">Partners</a></li>
                              <li><a href="#">Success-Stories</a></li>
                              <li><a href="#">5-Key-Points</a></li>
                              <li><a href="#">Home</a></li>
                        </ul>
                  </div>

after clicking one of the links
Doesn't the page contact.htm (for example) reside somewhere else ?
